The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bear and Hare are playing hide and seek, but Bear really isn’t very good at it – perhaps he’s just too big for hiding? Hare on the other hand is too good, and Bear can’t find him anywhere, so he decides he’ll tuck himself into bed for a snooze – it turns out to be a brilliant hiding place. Emily Gravett packs a proper story into this delightful board book, filling it with humour born out of Bear and Hare’s cleverly represented individual personalities. As ever, her illustrations are lively and dynamic, and her subjects beautifully observed. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Bear and Hare: Where's Bear? by Emily Gravett

Bear and Hare are back in their third adventure, and this time they're playing hide-and-seek. Hare is VERY good at closing his eyes and counting to 10. The problem is, Bear is NOT very good at hiding. Not very good at all. When you're as big as Bear squeezing yourself behind a lamp stand is not easy, and trying to disappear behind a glass fish tank is simply not going to work. But all of a sudden Bear is...gone! Wherever could he be?

About the Author

Emily Gravett

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors.

Emily Gravett is an author/illustrator of exceptional talent. Twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, her sharp wit and seemingly effortless drawing have created such brilliant picture books as Wolves, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and The Odd Egg.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Prize-winning illustrator Emily Gravett’s distinctive illustrations are always full of wit bringing the unexpected into stories and injecting them all with delightful humour. There’s magic in Spells as a frog turns himself into a handsome prince – well, almost!, excellent advice for rabbits on how to spot the danger of wolves in Wolves, lots of useful tips on how to be braver than you feel in Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, a thoughtful exploration of how home often turns out to be best despite feelings of wanderlust in Meerkat Mail, a celebration of exuberant movement in Monkey and Me and a fresh and delightful look at Dogs.
