Synopsis

Do Not Wash This Bear by Sam Hay

Toy Story meets Gremlins in this hilarious, rhythmic family caper where Daddy ignores a washing label and Bear comes alive! Bear has a very clear label sewn under his bottom. It says Do not wash this bear! But when Daddy puts him through a spin cycle anyway, a very naughty Bear comes out - one who causes mischief and mayhem all around the house! Father and son need Mummy to come home and save the day, but will she be back in time to show Bear who's boss before it's too late? With brightly coloured and exciting artwork from the illustrator of the Goodnight series, this is an action-packed story with rhythmic, funny text perfect for reading aloud to boys and girls who love their teddies and a little bit of mischief. Sam Hay trained as a journalist in Edinburgh and went on to work in newspapers for the BBC, before packing it in to move to Wales and write her first children's book. Since then she's had more than twenty books published, including the Undead Pets series about zombie animals and Screaming Sands, a ghostly trilogy set at the seaside. Nick East has worked as a museum designer for many years but his love of children's books has always been a huge part of his life. He loves using his drawings to communicate his ideas and passions and has always used them to tell stories. He is the illustrator of the Goodnight series, The Mouse Who Sailed the Seas, The New Royal Baby, Harry and the Monster, Who's For Dinner?
