The Very Cranky Bear is back, this time with an itch to scratch!

The last time we met Bear, his cave was invaded by four playful animals, and this made him cranky. In The Very Itchy Bear there is just one creature bothering him - a persistent flea - and it's making him very itchy! Bear runs over land and sea to escape the affections of this energetic insect, but Flea won't let him go - he just wants to keep saying hello! When Bear does successfully get rid of Flea, he finds that he... misses him. A beautiful new friendship is born!

With rhyming text and wonderfully expressive illustrations, Nick Bland's newest effort is the perfect read-aloud, guaranteed to make kids laugh out loud!

Sometimes a negative can turn out totally different than you expected

A book by one of my favorite children's authors, Nick Bland. Story about a bear and flea and their adventures.

The exaggerated poses that he makes when the flea bites are very funny.

Not as good as the original appearance of Bear in "The Very Cranky Bear", but still cute and funny
