“Up at the North Pole,

a big, furry polar bear is 

swimming, fishing

and eating”

But, when she nods off and finds herself 

far from home, she thinks things can’t get

and worse.  But they can …

Much worse!

What a fabulous book!

The boys and I sat down to read this together and we all enjoyed it so much.  Not only is this a really funny book which is created from little sticky notes added onto the page that talks about the story but it is also a great book to introduce children to the effects we are having on the planet.It is also a fabulous story showing children how we are all different and we should embrace that.

The story really kept the boys interest and even I was excited to see what happened in the end. They loved that each section finished with “Surely things couldn’t get any worse.  They could, much worse”. The boys liked saying this part and soon it was being shouted as load as possible.

I am sure this is going to become one of our favourite, go to books over the next few weeks.
