"A typically wonderful Oxenbury family sets out with gusto on a bear hunt, and the old story comes to life....Paintings are simply marvelous....Rosen's retelling is spare, with a driving rhythm, and some new sounds add sparkle to the traditional tale....Just plain fun from beginning to end."

Now that this classic is available in paperback, everyone can afford to add a copy of We're Going on a Bear Hunt to an established or growing collection!

Synopsis:

Brave King Jack and his faithful knights, Sir Zack and baby Casper, spend all day fighting fierce dragons and terrible beasts in their homemade fort. But night is falling, bedtime is looming, and playtime is nearly over. When Sir Zack and Caspar are taken inside for bed, King Jack - alone on his throne - finds himself feeling a bit less brave . . . especially when he hears a thing approaching, a thing with four legs.

A fantasy adventure and comforting bedtime tale in one. With Helen Oxenbury's spare, expressive illustrations, this classic in the making is perfect for imaginative preschoolers everywhere, and certainly for fans of There's a Nightmare in my Closet and Where the Wild Things Are.

Amy BookGirl, October 30, 2014 (view all comments by Amy BookGirl)
"We're gonna catch a big one. What a beautiful day. We're not scared. Uh Oh…" Go along with this adorable family as they go out looking for a bear… and find one. This book has lots of repetition your toddler will quickly memorize and start repeating with you. The story is easily adapted into an engaging imagination game; pretend that areas of your house are the different obstacles in the book, then run away from your child's teddy bear, ending up snuggled in your bed, shouting, “We're not going on a bear hunt a-gain!!”
