Synopsis

Marco: Master of Disguise by Gerry Boland

Nearly everyone in my class had a pet of some sort. Lots of them had dogs, and a fair few had cats, budgies and goldfish. Max Wallace had a hamster and Adam O'Hara had a tortoise which he claimed was sixty years old, though I'm pretty sure he was exaggerating. Sam Tripp had a small lizard and a pet rabbit, which was a strange combination. But no one I knew had a grizzly bear sleeping in their garden shed, or sat beside a grizzly bear most nights watching TV. Marco wasn't a pet, of course. He was my friend. My best friend. Can Patrick stop his friend being sent back to the zoo? An absurd and hilarious tale of real friendship.

Reviews

'a beautifully told, engaging tale, about Ireland's favourite, lovable grizzly bear'
