A Brave Bear

By Sean Taylor

Illustrated by Emily Hughes

What is the bravest thing in the world? A brave bear, of course! And who is the best at helping a little bear be brave? His dad, of course!

In this joyful story about children and their parents from the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise and the illustrator of Wild, a daddy bear and a baby bear spend a very special day together. It's as hot as hot can be, and Dad Bear says, "I think a pair of hot bears is probably the hottest thing in the world." So Little Bear suggests that they go to the river to cool down. But what will happen when Little Bear tries to impress his dad by doing a big jump across the rocks? The perfect present for Daddy Bear and Baby Bears alike, all readers will rejoice in the gorgeous characterization, the warmth of the storytelling and the deliciously detailed artwork of illustration star, Emily Hughes.

Reviews

'“A truly lovely tale in celebration of daddy and baby bears, with gorgeous, warm illustrations.” ' The Bookseller

'“The text perfectly catches some of those special interactions between parent and child, and illustrator Emily Hughes makes the bears particularly endearing.”' Andrea Reece, LoveReading

'The immediate pleasure of A Brave Bear by Sean Taylor and Emily Hughes is in the comfortable, assured rhythm of the writing. [...] The story also has a spring in its step and is a delightful account of a father/son relationship - one that will stay warm no matter how cool the river gets.' The Observer
