Come join Fred the Bear on a stunningly illustrated journey to be crowned the best bear in the wood and, just maybe, learn that there might be more to life than training… from the creative genius behind the #DrawWithRob phenomenon and the bestselling and award-winning Blown Away!
Each year, for as long as the forest has stood,
A contest is held for the bears of the wood…
And Fred is the champion. He’s just that good.
Fred is the Best Bear in the Wood – and he’s got the medals to prove it. Being the best takes a lot of hard work, and time on your own, but Fred doesn’t mind.
Until a new bear moves to town, and Fred’s champion GRRRRR goes missing… How will he ever win now? Or will Fred instead learn that some things are more important than winning?
A captivating and witty picture book from the incredible Rob Biddulph, the creative star behind the viral and phenomenal #DrawWithRob, as seen on YouTube, FaceBook, Instagram, CBeebies and TV news everywhere, and the Waterstones Book Prize-winning Blown Away!!
This is the perfect story for boys and girls of 4+ to share with their families. Get ready to win and enjoy Rob Biddulph’s trademark warm-hearted humour.
