‘The Very Cranky Bear’

'The Very Cranky Bear' is about helping other’s cheer up when they’re not feeling so happy. Not only does it teach children and young people about being unhappy but it also teaches them about helping others who are struggling.

In the Jingle, jangle jungle, four friends encounter a very cranky bear. Moose, Lion and Zebra all think they know how to cheer him up, but it's plain, boring Sheep who has the answer. This is a hilarious picture book, with the over-riding message being: Don't underestimate the quiet ones! Sometime a little thought is all you need to solve a problem instead of rushing to immediate action.
