Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Bob is a bear with a difference! He tries to everything he’s been taught before he goes out to be with a family but although he shows them his exercises, tries to be cuddly and does some reading, nothing seem to attract their attention. The he does something really special…How Bob bursts into pieces and entertains his new family will delight all the readers of the story too!

Michael Rosen on Michael Rosen:
I grew up in the London suburb of Pinner, a place my parents often wondered about. How had we landed there? My parents were teachers, politically committed (socialists), and great storytellers and readers. I was lucky to have found them.
Most of my adult life, I've been a freelance writer, teacher (of sorts), journalist, performer and broadcaster. I visit schools doing my one-man show, and support Arsenal Football Club.
I have often written about my life and family, but I also write occasional fantasy (usually based in a real place) and non-fiction.
