Bear and Hare are off on a fishing trip, with nets and rods at the ready. Bear loves fishing! Hare seems more interested in his picnic. But after a long wait, the two adventurers catch more than they expect in this tale of fun, friendship and fishy goings-on.

Full of warmth and humour, and starring two loveable characters, Bear and Hare Go Fishing is a beautifully illustrated story from Emily Gravett,the twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal. The gentle Laurel and Hardy style visual comedy delights very young children and adults alike.

Look out for other titles in this delightful series: Where's Bear? Mine, and Snow!
