…exactly as currently pictured in the above stock images.

Winner of the ‘1989 Nestlé Smarties Book Prize’ & a ‘2011 Mumsnet Best Award’, which shows just how long this Michael Rosen classic has remained a huge hit, spanning generations.
I believe that a '30th Anniversary Edition' is scheduled this year.

I can thoroughly recommend watching Michael Rosen performing We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, on the website on the back cover (last image below refers). You soon realise why this chap has such appeal to little ones. I met him years ago and he is just the same in his approach.

The quality board book measures around 18 cm x 15.75 cm, with rounded edges and has quality thick card pages throughout, in double-page spread format ~ 32 altogether.
The superb atmospheric illustrations, from the talented Helen Oxenbury alternate between BLACK & WHITE & pastel COLOURs every turn of the page, giving that extra surprise element. As is usual, there is more to the pictures than first meets the eye with plenty to discuss.
The simple facial expressions convey a variety of emotions and even the very little ones like to join in the repeat expressions (3 times) on the coloured pages, which increase in size on the page, namely:

~ Swishy swashy!
~ Splash, splosh!
~ Squelch, squerch!
~ Stumble trip!
~ Hoooo woooo!

Once the family get to the cave…it gets very quiet:

~ Tiptoe!

Then the format changes, but I couldn’t possibly spoil it!

IMO, a great book representing excellent value for money, especially when on 50% discount (at the time of order), so I have stocked up for the future.

ooOoo

From the back cover, also the repeat verse (until we get to the cave….):

‘We're going on a bear hunt.
We're going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We’re not scared.’
