Boogie Bear is the tale of a female polar bear who finds herself unexpectedly drifting far from home . . . and involved in all sorts of unwanted adventures with some rather unfriendly company!
The perfect partnership of Walliams’ wit and Ross’s inimitable illustrations, Boogie Bear is an outrageously funny story that embraces difference and celebrates friendship.
Boogie Bear is the fifth picture book from bestselling creators David Walliams and Tony Ross punished by HarperCollins Children’s Books. There’s no stopping this couple of incredible British talents.
Boogie Bear is a hilariously heart-warming story that’s the perfect festive treat for young children and their parents. There’s something special about picture books. My 11 year old son and I still love them together. We will never be too old for this. Let’s see how long we can keep this good habit going.
Recently published in hardback, ebook and audio, Boogie Bear follows the trailblazing 10th novel from David, Bad Dad, and promises a totally Walliams Christmas!
David Walliams and Tony Ross’s first three picture books together, The Slightly Annoying Elephant, The First Hippo on the Moon and The Bear Who Went Boo!, were all number one bestsellers. David and Tony have also worked together on David’s phenomenally successful children’s novels as well as bestselling short story collections, The World’s Worst Children and, most recently, The World’s Worst Children 2. The World’s Worst Children 2, which published in May 2017, spent two weeks as overall industry number one and 11 weeks at the top of the children’s bestseller chart.
