Book giveaway: I Am Bear

This giveaway is sponsored by Walker Books

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 along!

Meet the cheeky rebel hero of the forest in I Am Bear – the new picture book by actor Ben Bailey Smith and storyboard artist Sav Akyüz. This rap-style, read-aloud picture book features a loveable but mischievous purple rapping bear who can do anything – steal honey from the bees or doughnuts from a police officer, do magic tricks, and annoy a certain pesky squirrel. If there's trouble, one thing is certain: Bear was there. With funny wordplay and bold imagery, this trickster will have your little ones rhyming along and roaring with laughter from beginning to end.

"Fun, smart and different… I love this bear." - Ricky Gervais
