Review

This amusing guide book contains an array of information about how to spot and behave around bears. It includes insightful observations, such as black bears are dangerous and black, whereas brown bears are dangerous and brown.

The young protagonist sets off to explore bear country, armed with the guide book, pepper spray, a packet of gum and a cuddly toy bear. However, when faced with both a black and a brown bear, the brave explorer has to use some unusual tactics to avoid being eaten.

Not to be taken seriously, this frivolous guide to bear spotting superbly combines tongue-in-cheek text with witty, characterful pen and ink illustrations. The result is a stylish, highly entertaining picture book, perfect for reading aloud.
