A playful, warm and funny story following a boy with a wild imagination and his lively family, from exciting creative duo: Swapna Haddow and Dapo Adeola.

Shhh. Beware. My dad is a grizzly bear.

In this family, it's just possible that Dad is a grizzly bear . . . He has fuzzy fur, enormous paws and loves the outdoors. He sleeps a lot even in the cinema and when he's awake, he's always hungry, usually eating up all the honey. what else could Dad be? But sometimes, when it's scary at night, a lovely big bear hug is just what is needed.

A hilarious debut picture book written by Swapna Haddow author of the Dave Pigeon series and illustrated by the brilliantly talented Dapo Adeola author of Look Up!

My top pick for Father's Day is this big-hearted look at family life, seen through the eyes of a little boy with a big imagination, replete with humour and warmth, and playful, energetic art from rising star Adeola.

Bookseller, editor's choice

With some lovely words and beautiful illustrations, the book carries the reader away on adventures, camping under the stars and looking for bears in the forest. Meanwhile, dads everywhere will sympathise with the father and his scratchy beard.
