The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2015 As all little children know, there’s great fun to be had in jumping out and shouting ‘Boo!’. The little polar bear star of David Walliams’s new picture book likes nothing more than to surprise his neighbours in this way, though his mother keeps warning him that he wouldn’t like it if someone did it to him. As the animals prepare for the arrival of a documentary film crew, the little cub has a field day, and even catches out the distinguished wildlife expert mid-presentation to camera. It’s lots of fun and young readers will love shouting ‘Boo!’ along with the little bear. The inimitable Tony Ross makes the cub adorable and naughty at the same time and his nude sunbathing walrus is sublime. ~ Andrea Reece
