Snappy rhyme and funky, expressive illustrations tell a quick and entertaining tale of boundaries, bad behaviour and the baby inside the bully. Our girls are just as tickled by this book now, at ages 5 and 7, as they were during its billions of readings in their toddler years.

Other books mentioned: Angel and the Polar Bear

Thank you Andrea and Mark for the lively and
insightful review of Big Black Bear.

The most wonderful thing about doing children’s books,
is their ability to make time stand still. Even though BBB happened 14 years ago for me, to the child who is
hearing it for the very first time, it will always be new.

By the way, the illustrations were done in acrylics.

Best wishes,
Wong Herbert Yee

TJ loves the book cover. So now, we’ll have to find a copy of the book!

Our little guy is very into art these days. In fact a few days ago he painted a series of trains on 24×18″ paper. Following his painting spree he walked around the house scouting out places to hang his artwork. We now have framed TJ art alongside our other paintings and such. I’ll have to send a photo.

Given his interest in art I think he would enjoy seeing other illustrations from the book!

A giveaway…hmmm…looks like another family review has to be put in motion :-)
