A fun board book featuring a busy little bear in a very spooky house. Filled with lots of chunk sliding mechanisms for little hands to play with.
From a young age Benji was invariably to be found drawing and painting at the kitchen table, a scene which is often repeated to this day. He is the prize-winning illustrator of all the Bizzy Bear books and apps, as well as a number of recent picture books, including The Storm Whale, and Grandad's Island. Benji lives in east London.
“The ever-intrepid Bizzy Bear has come for a visit to a super-spooky Halloween house. As he climbs the rickety stairs and walks the cobwebby corridors, all sorts of creepy characters appear from doors and hidey holes. Bizzy, naturally, remains undaunted - but where could he be going and what will he find there?"
This is a delightful board book perfect for the very young who will enjoy the rhyming text and the interactivity of the things to discover on the pages. Discovering what's hiding behind the chair, who's behind the door and predicting why they are all getting together will delight them for ages. Although there is little text, there is great detail in the colourful illustrations which will enrich and enhance the child's vocabulary as they make their collection of spooky things.
I predict it will become a favourite as they will be able to tell themselves the story very easily.
