A playful, warm and funny story about a boy with a wild imagination and his lively family, from brand new creative duo: Swapna Haddow and Dapo Adeola.
Shhh. Beware. My dad is a grizzly bear.
In this family, it's just possible that Dad is a grizzly bear . . . He has fuzzy fur, enormous paws and he loves the outdoors. He sleeps a lot, even at the movies and when he's awake, he's always hungry, usually eating up all the honey, what else could Dad be? But sometimes, when it's scary at night, a lovely big bear hug is just what is needed.
