The Very Brave Bear is Nick Bland’s latest book featuring the Very Cranky Bear, and it is every bit as fun and raucous. Bear and Boris Buffalo challenge each other to a bravery competition to see who is scared of rolling down the steepest hill or climbing the highest tree… but in the end it’s something not so scary that sends them racing off in fear. The book has vibrant full page pictures, rhymes and bold fonts that make it perfect for reading aloud. Fast paced and attention grabbing, it’s perfect for younger children.
