LoveReading View on Bug Bear

‘Down in the forest as Bear had a doze/ A small stripy bug came and sat on his nose’, and so Bear’s troubles begin.  He really doesn’t want to become home to this troublesome, if extremely cheerful and friendly bug. In one lovely spread the other animals look on askance as Bear vigorously tries to shake Bug off. Eventually Owl comes to the rescue, sensibly suggesting a welcoming alternative home for Bug. It’s an original and very funny story, told in accomplished, jolly rhyme, and Carmen Saldana’s bold, vibrant illustrations give a real sense of scale and unfolding drama. ~ Andrea Reece

Bug Bear Synopsis

One bothersome bug needs a warm place to stay - and Bear's thick fur looks perfect. What a kerfuffle! Will Bear ever get this wiggly, tickly Bug to buzz off?

Bug Bear is a hilariously entertaining picture book. Readers are sure to giggle as they watch grumpy Bear struggle to get rid of his uninvited guest! With bright and engaging illustrations, young children will love to read this eye-catching story again and again.
