'The Very Cranky Bear is back, and now he's hungry! When the Very Hungry Bear goes fishing, he ends up catching more than he bargained for - a polar bear, with an armful of fish, who needs help finding a new home! Vibrant illustrations and a fun, engaging story make this book perfect for reading aloud' (Libraries Australia).
