TITLE: The Grizzly Bear Who Lost His Grrrrr!
AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR: Rob Biddulph
PUBLISHER: Harper Collins, 2015
SYNOPSIS: “From the award-winning author and illustrator of Blown Away, Rob Biddulph, comes a delightfully hilarious story about a grizzly bear named Fred who loses his GRRRRR.
Each year, for as long as the forest has stood, a contest is held for the bears of the wood… Fred is the champion. He’s the best.
But being the best takes time and training, especially when it comes to having the loudest growl. Then, one morning, disaster strikes—Fred’s GRRRRR is gone! Oh, no! Will Fred find his GRRRRR and realize that there’s more to life than being a winner?”
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : Mr. Biddulph has created a great story about a bear named Fred who is very confident in his ability to win his town’s annual bear contest. But maybe he’s just a bit TOO confident when he thinks one bear can do it all without the help of anyone else. Fred discovers no bear is an island when he loses his voice on the morning of the contest, and just when he needs it, his friends come to his rescue! THE GRIZZLY BEAR WHO LOST HIS GRRRRR! is a great reminder that someone who has friends is already a winner in life! A nice addition to any library!
