With thanks to Lucybird’s Book Blog and her weekly Children’s Hour post.
Our two children have loved this, Michael Rosen at his very best in our opinion. We have spent many bedtimes reading this, and many moments where thick mud has become “thick, squelchy mud” and “squelch squerch”
When they were under 5 any cave or dark recess was a potential bear!
The book’s illustrations are by the excellent Helen Oxenbury. A must have book, one that still gets read to, and by, our 7 year old at bedtime.
Here’s a link to a you tube video of Michael performing the story.
