We’re Going on a Bear Hunt with Channel 4!

We are really excited that Channel 4 are going to air a special animated adaptation of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury!

Produced by the makers of The Snowman and The Snowdog, the 30-minute special will air on Channel 4 in 2016.

When Stan, Katie, Rosie, Max, the baby and Rufus the dog are left home alone one day before Christmas after their parents go the rescue of Grandma, the children decide it would be fun to go on a bear hunt, spurred on by Katie’s love of grizzly bears. After swishing and swashing through the long grass, splashing and sploshing through rivers and squilching and squelching through mud, Rufus the dog picks up the scent of a bear…

Incorporating the irresistible story and beautiful artwork of the original book, which last year celebrated 25 years as an international bestseller and a firm family favourite at bedtime, We’re Going  on a Bear Hunt will enchant a whole new audience with its story of perseverance, optimism and the determination to confront your fears head on.
