The Lovereading4Kids comment

Celebrating a special friendship between a small boy and his favourite bear – a great big grizzly! Big and bold illustrations show all the wonderful things boy and bear enjoy together. Exploring, playing hide and seek, sharing secrets – the two have the greatest fun in this magical story.


My Bear Griz by Suzanne McGinness

Billy has a bear called Griz. A Grizzly Bear. And the two friends have all kinds of wonderful adventures together. They go exploring, play hide and seek, eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches, share secrets and tell jokes. Griz is the best friend a boy could possibly have - whether he's a Grizzly Bear or a teddy bear...This is a stunning debut picture book about a boy and his bear, in which the short text and tactile, large scale paintings bring Griz and Billy magically to life.


'Billy and Griz share everything and this is a lovely story of friendship - with a totally unexpected twist at the end.' - Parents in Touch

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
