Everyone knows that sometimes dads can be grumpy and grouchy and grizzly. . . .
Dad woke up in a grizzly mood. All morning he groaned and grizzled and grumped. And then he went back to bed! But when I pulled back the covers to see how he was, it wasn’t Dad in bed at all . . . it was a GREAT BIG GRIZZLY BEAR! I should have been frightened but the grumpy look on his face reminded me of someone. . . .
This is the story of how one little boy looks after a very grizzly bear for the day. He brushes his fur (and his smelly teeth!), lets him forage in the fridge, and then they zoom into town in a bright red sports car for the best day out
ever! At home they have honey sandwiches and a big bear hug, and when Mum gets home, everything is back to normal. Or is it?
