Description

For brave hunters and bear lovers, the classic chant-aloud by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury is now available in a delightful puzzle book edition.

Imagine the fun of going on a bear hunt — through tall, wavy grass (swishy swishy swishy! ), swampy mud (squelch squelch squelch! ), and a swirling whirling snowstorm (hoooo woooo! ) — only to find a "real" bear waiting at the end of the trail! The perfect gift for a preschooler, this exciting novelty edition includes seven press-out puzzles featuring Helen Oxenbury’s lively art.
