The Grizzly Bear with the Frizzly Hair could frighten the feathers off a peacock... "Yipes!" blinked the itzy-bitzy rabbit. "What are you going to do?" "Have my lunch," growled the bear. "And my lunch is ... YOU!" So begins a cat-and-mouse story in which rabbit attempts to talk his way out of a tight spot. As the bear dangles him further and further into his mouth, tension mounts - surely he won't escape. But then rabbit points out a much bigger lunch for the bear - the bear's own reflection in the river. The bear is soon enraged by his reflection's belligerence, and the rabbit makes the most of the opportunity. A traditional story that is known in Ireland, South Africa, Iran, China and the USA and is delightfully told in a highly rhythmic and rhyming text that is a joy to read aloud. Children will love the drama and tension of the rabbit's dilemma, making it a great book for early years reading and language development.
