Alun the Bear and the Grand Slam

Publisher: Y Lolfa

It’s a special day for Alun the Bear. He’s going with Mam and Dad to the Millennium Stadium to watch Wales play rugby. At the game Alun is so excited he wants to join in. He runs down to the pitch and catches hold of the ball and makes a break for the try line. And he scores! Only he scored for the wrong team – what a disaster. The crowd isn’t happy. Alun gets another chance when a Wales player gets injured. The captain was so impressed by Alun’s running he brings him back. And this time Alun plays in the right direction.

The players are an exciting range of animals: dogs, hippos, crocodiles, rhinos and lions. Part of the Alun the Bear series, this a fun and muddy story with simple Welsh that’s good to read under 5’s or great for children starting off reading independently.

Also available in Welsh as Alun yr Arth a’r gêm fawr.
