Bear Flies High (HB $28) is the latest picture book from Michael Rosen, author of the much loved We’re Going On A Bear Hunt.
Mr Bear sits on the beach, singing all day long and watching the birds fly by. He wishes he could fly just like the birds do and one day, his wish is granted when some passing children take him to an amusement park. They whirl around in cups and saucers, brave the haunted house, but best of all, they fly high on the big dipper. When Mr Bear returns to his beach, he can watch the birds, knowing that, sometimes, he can fly too.
This beautiful story comes paired with an audio CD of the book read alound by Michael Rosen himself.
