Classic kids book at an excellent price. And even better, as it's part of the 10 for £10 offer - which is always handy to stock up on books for the kids, or for kids parties.
For brave explorers and fearless bear-hunters, enjoy this chant-along children’s classic!
We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to catch a big one. Will you come too? For a quarter of a century, readers have been swishy-swashying and splash-sploshing through this award-winning favourite. Follow and join in the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest? Michael Rosen’s timeless classic, lovingly illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, is nearing its thirtieth anniversary. Having first appeared in print in 1989, it has since become an essential feature on any child’s first bookcase.

Used this for years when I was a teacher. The children loved it, acting it out etc. Can be made into a great sensory story using props. I have also read it with all of my grandchildren and it’s the book they request the most.
Maybe the reason it’s “charmless” is that not enough effort is put into the reading aloud of it by some.

Such a boring book, don't know what the fuss is about with it. Badly written and charmless.

Does anyone know if the TV version deviates much from the book? Because I found it to be quite charming

From memory the TV version is almost word for word, I really enjoyed it. It’s not told the way Michael Rosen tells it, but still lovely, with a twist at the end

If you get yourself on YouTube, you should be able to find a clip of Michael Rosen telling it himself. I’ve heard many a boring read-aloud of this, but the ones that do it right are captivating for children and utterly brilliant.
Loved this book when the kids got it home from school. Getting to act it out was fun. It's all in the telling of it.
This was my favourite book as a baby. I had an original copy, it had a plain red hardback cover with black and white pictures inside.

It must have been around 1992 when my school had a book fair and I took my book in for everyone to read. The teachers loved it so much that they asked if they could borrow it so they could make copies of it. They had my book for a few months and came back with copies which was in colour and the picture from the first page became the picture for the front cover.
I wonder if my book was used to create the modern coloured copies.
It would be interesting to find out.
Our kids love this book and love hearing it over and over. I agree that Michael Rosenberg’s reading of it on YouTube is rather good and the kids love that too.
I absolutely HATE this book and sadly my boy loves it. "We're going on a bear hunt, we're going to catch a big one"... STFU.

Lol, I’ve come across a few books like that in my time but you must be reading it well if he keeps wanting you to read it to him.

The other adult version of a BEAR would have been so more fun and be based in San Francisco

I’m not a troll but I have to agree - it’s one the kids choose but I find it very repetitive and not as clever as Julia Donaldson for example.
