Nick Bland's bestselling The Very Hungry Bear is now available in board book! Bear is back...and he's very, very hungry! Bear is trying to fish, but instead of food, he only manages to catch . . . a polar bear? The poor bear is lost and his ice floe is rapidly melting. The polar bear makes a deal: he'll give Bear a pile of fish in return for a new home. Bear takes his new friend on a tour, and finally they find the just-right home for an ice-loving bear. The Bear we all fell in love with in The Very Cranky Bear and The Very Itchy Bear is just as delightful as always -- and much less cranky with the promise of food on the horizon! This new story features the same bold, clever illustrations and catchy rhyming text that made Nick Bland's first two Bear books instant favourites. Told with his characteristic humour and wit, The Very Hungry Bear is both an endearing tale of friendship and a subtle message about preserving our environment.
