There's a Bear on My Chair

Author: Ross Collins
Illustrator: Ross Collins
Publisher: Nosy Crow

A mouse gets increasingly exasperated because a bear has made himself very much at home on HIS chair. The positioning of the angry little mouse on the left of each spread giving voice to his frustration and the genial smiling polar bear on the right filling the space is beautifully and satisfyingly designed. This is maintained throughout the book until the equally humorous dénouement. The text demonstrates many rhymes, regular and irregular, for the word ‘bear’, making this an enjoyable book to link to phonics teaching.
