A playful, warm and funny story following a boy with a wild imagination and his lively family, from Swapna Haddow and Dapo Adeola.


Shhh. Beware. My dad is a grizzly bear.


In this family, it’s just possible that Dad is a grizzly bear . . . He has fuzzy fur, enormous paws and loves the outdoors. He sleeps a lot even in the cinema and when he’s awake, he’s always hungry, usually eating up all the honey. What else could Dad be? But sometimes, when it’s scary at night, a lovely big bear hug is just what is needed.
