The Lovereading4Kids comment
Clever rabbit has almost been eaten alive by the Grizzly Bear when he thinks of an outrageous trick he can play to save his own skill. A thrilling building story unfolds entertainingly in this robust retelling of a traditional tale. Hannah Shaw’s illustrations point up the absurdity of the situation.
The Grizzly Bear with the Frizzly Hair by Sean Taylor
The Grizzly Bear with the Frizzly Hair could frighten the feathers off a peacock... Yipes! blinked the itzy-bitzy rabbit. What are you going to do? Have my lunch, growled the bear. And my lunch is ...YOU! So begins a cat-and-mouse story in which rabbit attempts to talk his way out of a tight spot. As the bear dangles him further and further into his mouth, tension mounts - surely he won't escape. But then rabbit points out a much bigger lunch for the bear - the bear's own reflection in the river. The bear is soon enraged by his reflection's belligerence, and the rabbit makes the most of the opportunity. A traditional story that is known in Ireland, South Africa, Iran, China and the USA and is delightfully told in a highly rhythmic and rhyming text that is a joy to read aloud. Children will love the drama and tension of the rabbit's dilemma, making it a great book for early years reading and language development. Another wonderful read-aloud picture book from an award-winning author and creators of Crocodiles Are the Best Animals of All.
