Bear spotting is a serious business don’tchyaknow and one that needs to be taken extremely seriously!
From the stupendous pairing of Michelle Robinson and David Roberts comes a overwhelmingly great (dare we say it, roarsome) picture book.
But be warned, this book doesn’t pull any punches, it tells it like it is! Bear hunting IS very dangerous and as any self-respecting bearspotter knows, you must follow this guide to the letter to ensure you remain safe at all times.
“Black bears are dangerous and BLACK.
Brown bears are dangerous and BROWN.
Although sometimes brown bears can be a little BLACK and black bears can be a little BROWN.”
The marriage of Michelle Robinson‘s words with David Roberts’ pictures makes for one of the funniest picture books of the year so far and I defy anyone not to laugh out loud to some of cracking one-liners and thoroughly perfect illustrations.
Roberts has captured the humour in Robinson’s writing impeccably and just look out for the facial expressions of these menacing bears.
Whilst only in January, we know this will undoubtedly be one of our books of the year.
