There's a Bison Bouncing
on the Bed!
Written by Paul Bright
Illustrated by Chris Chatterton
Chicken House £6.99
A big, colourful picture book for younger readers has fantastic larger-than-life illustrations. It is great fun to count as more and more animals bounce on the bed until, uh-oh, it breaks. You may have heard of the straw that breaks the camel's back, well, here is the beetle that breaks the bed. The bouncers all begin to argue about who is responsible, until Grizzly Bear, who was asleep in the bed all the time, wakes up and blames them all. So, together, they all set to work to fix the bed, but, will it ever be the same again? Wonderful rhymes will capture your attention as you read through the book to find a rather unexpected ending. A cautionary tale for all young bed bouncers.
