BOM! Went the Bear by Nicki Greenberg

BOM! went the bear on the big bass drum. Ting-ting-a-ting-ting-a Strum strum strum..Bear loves to play his big bass drum. On his own. Making as much noise as he can, marching around like he's king of all the land. It looks like so much fun that soon he's joined by all manner of enthusiastic musicians. But with so many animals determined to deliver a command performance, is there room for Bear to march to the beat of his own drum?


.. .the abundant soundeffects make for jubilant reading. But even more valuable and rare is the that happiness does not require being part of an ensemble. Playing solo is just fine. - Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Nicki Greenberg has had a lifelong fascination with strange creatures, especially the ones with goggly eyes. Like the octopus, Nicki is adept at camouflage. She can often be found disguised as a lawyer, but on her days off she writes and illustrates comics. Favourite subjects include zombies, New York City, pirates, gentle monsters and, of course, squids. Researching cephalopods has not put Nicki off her favourite dish: crispy fried salt-and-pepper squid.
