Bear was friendly, Bear was sweet, The nicest bear you'd ever meet! With little paws and little feet, And a very BIG bear bottom! Poor Bear! His bottom is causing chaos... Bump! Crash! Splat! Soon Bear is in great big trouble! Can he ever make it up to his friends? A hilarious story of bottoms, bears and animal friends that will have children giggling at Bear's bottom-based mishaps. From children's favourite Steve Smallman, author of Smelly Peter, the Great Pea Eater and The Monkey with A Bright Blue Bottom.
"This is a charming book, with such excellent rhyming and skilful storytelling that it really caught [my children's] imagination and my daughter could recite it word for word after a few readings. It's a joy to read with them because they join in, shouting out "bear's big bottom" every time... We recommend this book from the bottom of our ... bottoms!" * THE GUARDIAN * "This is the perfect picture book to read and enjoy together." -- July Picture Book of the Month * MUMSNET * "Funny, touching picture book with large print and a few sentences on each page, great for new readers." * PRIMARY TIMES * "This is a hilarious story of bottoms, bears and animal friends that will have children giggling at Bear's bottom-based mishaps." * LONDON MUMS MAGAZINE * "Little children always like a good bottom joke, and Bear's Big Bottom by Steve Smallman and Emma Yarlett is a very good one." * SUNDAY EXPRESS * "...with its rhyming text and its hilarious and dynamic artwork, Bear's Big Bottom is a joy to read aloud and share. Behind all the bottom-related antics lies a message about the ups and downs of friendship and accepting and celebrating friends' differences, and with both text and artwork carrying such gusto, the message is all the more effective. Emma Yarlett is definitely an illustrator to watch... With its slapstick humour Bear's Big Bottom really is a hoot and will delight little readers." * LIBRARY MICE BLOG *
