The Adventures of Bearwolf


Worth reading 😎

A whimsical journey through a fantastic world that is just right for bedtime.

Join Bearwolf and his best friend, Fidget the frog, as they encounter memorable adventures in a world where the sky's the limit! Written completely in verse, this collection holds several tales in the magical world of Bearwolf and his friends. Each story is full of unexpected adventure, and each tale has a real-world message delivered in a gentle way. In this fantasy world of Penguineapigs, an eccentric Professor, and other magical folk, children young and old will embark on a wonderful journey that's just right for bedtime.

After a busy day, a good book for bedtime is a must. The adventures of Bearwolf and his friends fits perfectly, and is sure to be a favorite for bedtime reading. Reminiscent of the TV series Sarah and Duck, and with touches of British and Native American lore, this collection of stories is written in verse to help children relax after a big day. The stories are interesting, but not over stimulating, and give stressed out kids something totally new and different to explore. While set in a magical world, children gently learn real lessons about diversity, friendship, and responsibility. There were a few instances of crude humor, and a bit of pronoun confusion in the last chapter. Additionally, the last story in the book can seem a bit scary if it's too late at night. However, Bearwolf and his magical friends are always ready to lend a helping hand, and explore a new horizon.

Great for parents or an older sibling to read aloud to a little one, this collection adds a touch of whimsy to any library. Get ready for a magical adventure unlike any you've ever seen. Just remember not to scare the Penguineapigs!
