4 y separately published work icon Another Book about Bears Laura Bunting , Philip Bunting (illustrator), ( trans. Gilda de Aquino with title Mais um livro sobre ursos ) Sao Paulo : Brinque Book , 2021 21922754 2018 single work picture book children's

'Ever wondered why there are so many books about bears? Discover the grizzly truth in this bear-all account.

'Bears are tired. Sick and tired. And just when they are in the middle of something really good—like sleeping, snoozing or napping—too many storybooks mean they have to stop what they are doing—that is sleeping—and get up and be part of a story. Every story. Well, the bears have had enough. They are going on strike. This hilarious book looks at some alternatives for all the parts bears play in stories. But what sort of animal could be... just right?'

'Two seals are perched on a rock. When others need shelter, do they share it? Room on Our Rock celebrates the truth that there are two sides to every story. This clever picture book has one story that can be read two different ways. When read from front to back, the seals believe there is definitely no room on their rock for others. But when the book is read from back to front, the seals welcome others to shelter on their rock. A heartwarming story about sharing and compassion.' (Publication summary)
