Bear Moves

By Ben Bailey Smith

Illustrated by Sav Akyuz

Everyone's favourite purple bear is back and bolder than ever in this laugh-out-loud page turner from Ben Bailey Smith and Sav Akyuz.

With funny word play and bold imagery, actor Ben Bailey Smith and artist Sav Akyuz have created a Bear to remember. If there's one thing Bear knows, it's how to move. And when the music starts up, Bear just can't help grooving to the beat – spinning round, belly dancing and even doing the foxtrot. This infectiously rhythmic and hilariously funny sequel to I Am Bear will keep readers in stitches from start to finish.
