"I always burp. My Daddy gets told off for burping."
"I don't burp EVER 'cos I'm a girl. Girls don't burp......but my Mummy does....."
The Slurpy Burpy Bear
By Norbert Landa
Illustrated by Jane Chapman
Little Tiger Press 2011
The rabbits are frightened of something they call “The Beast” who slurps and burps and makes terrible smells! Big Bear is lonely and wants to find a friend. This is the story of their two worlds colliding.
Although Big Bear and Little Rabbit have quite an unlikely friendship, Big Bear goes out of his way to be kind. I really enjoyed these illustrations, and Tim says Little Rabbit is adorable! I have a soft spot for Big Bear myself.....but I don't like burping....
