On the 9th day of Christmas: Bear Moves

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, nine ladies dancing…and Bear Moves, written by Ben Bailey Smith and illustrated by Sav Akyuz. 

With funny word play and bold imagery, actor Ben Bailey Smith and artist Sav Akyuz have created a Bear to remember. 

If there's one thing Bear knows, it's how to move. And when the music starts up, Bear just can't help grooving to the beat – spinning round, belly dancing and even doing the foxtrot. 

This infectiously rhythmic and hilariously funny sequel to I Am Bear will keep readers in stitches from start to finish.
