MY DAD IS A GRIZZLY BEAR

by Swapna Haddow, illustrate­d by Dapo Adeola, Macmillan Children’s Books, £6.99 (ebook £2.99). Available April 29 ★★★★I

Little kids love to make up stories - they pretend to be characters, taking on the role of different animals with their parents - and that’s why My Dad Is A Grizzly Bear is a winner. It is easy for small ones and carers to imagine themselves as the father and daughter in the book: dad as the grizzly bear and daughter as the narrator.

With some lovely words and beautiful illustrati­ons, the book carries the reader away on adventures, camping under the stars and looking for bears in the forest.

Meanwhile, dads everywhere will sympathise with the father and his scratchy beard. Review by Roddy Brooks
