"Oh I lOVE this! Iʼve got this at home!"
"My Dad and my Mum snores SO much!"
"The Bear is ANGRY!"
"Itʼs just his face is angry when he wakes up. Heʼs sad really."
"I like the Bear. He looks fluffy."
Bear Snores On
By Karma Wilson
Illustrated by Jane Chapman
Simon and Schuster 2002
This is the first of the ʻBearʼ series by Karma Wilson. Bear is asleep while a collection of animals shelter in his den during a snowstorm. They end up having a bit of a party…….but then the BEAR WAKES UP!
I LOVE this book! I love the words, I love the pictures, I love it having been a best-seller for so long! I knew it was special the moment the text whirred through the fax machine, and Iʼm very proud to be part of it.
