This is Bear! He was bare. Now he's wearing ... purple hair? His favourite thing is playing tricks. He makes trouble just for kicks! Check out Bear before he's gone. Rhyme along - come on!
If there's trouble, one thing is certain: Bear was there. In (and out) of his outrageous purple outfit, Bear can do anything – steal honey from the bees, do magic tricks, steal doughnuts from a police officer, and annoy a certain pesky squirrel. This hilarious picture book debut of actor Ben Bailey Smith (aka rapper Doc Brown) and artist Sav Akyuz will be sure to keep your little mischief-makers in stitches.
Here at Walker HQ we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the launch of I Am Bear than by tucking into a cheeky box of delicious doughnuts (Bear's favourite!) - and we got some for you too! We have a Krispy Kreme gift card to give away with an I Am Bear goody bag, including a copy of the book, a poster, stickers and activities. Three runners up will get an I Am Bear poster. To enter, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with 'I Am Bear' in the subject line before 31st January 2017. Terms and conditions apply.
Join in the fun and download these free I Am Bear activity sheets and pick up a copy of I Am Bear at your local bookshop.
Check out the videos below to rap along with Bear and go behind the scenes with the makers, Ben and Sav!
