REVIEW: The Very Itchy Bear

The Very Itchy Bear

Author / Illustrator: Nick Bland

 Scholastic, $15.99

Presented by Nick Bland and Scholastic Australia, The Very Itchy Bear is a genuine reading treat. Driven by lilting rhyme and comical theme, the text is one that engages the reader immediately. Star character Bear is a boon – so full of kindness and care, but  slightly bothered by the biting flea. On land and sea, the adventure speeds – moving around Bear - ear, nose and knee! A thrilling read, presenting Bland at his best, The Very Itchy Bear will be read (and remembered) with love.
