What everyone says about We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

“Swishy Swashy! Squelch Squerch! It’s no surprise at all that We’re Going on a Bear Hunt has become the classic picture book of the past 25 years. We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is the ultimate join-in book of all time. Michael Rosen’s bouncy text and Helen Oxenbury’s warm and funny pictures, including a nearly scary bear, are irresistible to children and their parents. We’re looking forward to a year of celebrations and bear hunts across the country, to make sure that every child in the country has a chance to Go on a Bear Hunt again and again!”
Jane Winterbotham, Publishing Director

The Sunday Times

“It’s practically a crime not to own a copy.”

“On a rainy day, this story is a wonderful way of escaping the confines of the sofa, by suggesting the squelching of muddy fields, the crackle of wild woods, and the swirl and bluster of a snowstorm.”
