A Beginner’s Guide to Bear Spotting – Michelle Robinson/David Roberts



Published: March 2016

ISBN: 9781681190266

Imprint: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

RRP $22.99

We all know that kids love offbeat humour and this is certainly a book that will tick that box. Bear spotting is a tricky business so if you’re going searching you need to be prepared with all the information required.


For example did you know:

Black bears are dangerous and black, brown bears are dangerous and brown?

With hints for what to do should you run into a dangerous bear – remember to have some gum with you! – this will have your readers giggling aloud.

The illustrations which accompany the humorous text are equally laugh-out-loud making with the small child character kitted out with all his bear-spotting accouterments.

This is not a deep and meaningful picture book. It is just pure good fun and great humour.

I foresee this will be a huge hit as a read aloud with the small humans from around 5 and up and I can’t wait to share it soon in a story session.
