Synopsis

Little Adventurers: What Bear? Where? by Philip Ardagh

If you're brave, helpful, honest, good to your planet and kind to animals (even ones that don't do much ... like boring worms) then you, too, can be a Little Adventurer.From the award-winning Philip Ardagh, and rising illustration talent Elissa Elwick, comes the second instalment in a brand-new picture book series! Meet the Little Adventurers - Finnegan, Sprat, Floss and Peanut. Each week they meet in their top-secret shed HQ, ready to share their fun with you! This week, their mission is to spot animals - creepy-crawly, furry or fishy! But animal-spotting day is not without its challenges for such an imaginative troop of friends... Even with Sprat's homemade binoculars on-hand, hosepipes can be mistaken for snakes, dad's broom for a prickly hedgehog, and - eek! - can that really be a grizzly bear lurking behind that bush?

Praise for Leafy the Pet Leaf;

This cheery group of Little Adventurers will charm young readers with the fun they are having with their pets [...] the Little Adventurers four will encourage hours of immersive play, and will ignite the imagination of curious adventurers everywhere. Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading

With its green message, animal facts and activity ideas for playing outside it will inspire the imagination and creativity. This eclectic mix of characters will have wide appeal and after reading kids can have fun making their own pet leaf. South Wales Evening Post

This big, square book is full of life and colour and the story about an unusual 'pet's imaginations. [...] The spreads are well designed with print of different sizes, speech bubbles and notices to add interest an all these things give a dynamic feel to the pages. The School Librarian

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
