LoveReading View on We're Going on a Bear Hunt

This classic picture book is such a triumph of words and illustration, as satisfying to look at as it is to read aloud, that it hardly needs an extra gimmick, but snow globes are irresistible and there’s something particularly pleasing about shaking the snowflakes around in this special gift edition, especially when reading about the swirling, whirling snowstorm, “Hoooo woooo! “Hoooo woooo!” It will be fun to share this with children and it’s a book that everyone should own. ~ Andrea Reece

*** Last Christmas Channel 4 showed an animated TV adaptation of We're Going on a Bear Hunt. Find out more here!

Michael Rosen said: “I am absolutely delighted that Channel 4 has commissioned this animation. Lupus have a great record in this field and I am very excited to be part of the project. Helen Oxenbury's wonderful art work provides a powerful family saga, full of imagined or real trials and these pictures will give a basis for a moving Christmas drama.”

Helen Oxenbury said: "I'm so looking forward to seeing the book brought to life in this way. It's a wonderful opportunity to bring We're Going on a Bear Hunt to even more children and I'm thrilled to be part of it."

Jay Hunt, Channel 4 Chief Creative Officer, said: “Going on a Bear Hunt is a magical book that will be brought alive for a whole new audience by Lupus Films. I can’t wait.
