4.0 out of 5 stars Charming book about toddler tanturms 10 Sep 2001
By A Customer
A lovely book with pretty illustrations tells how bear does not get a good nights sleep and wakes up in a bad mood. He is beastly to everyone and finally kicks Grandad in the leg! Mum takes bad mood bear up to bed and give his a biscuit and a drink. Bear has a nap and wakes up in a feeling much happier. Lovely way to learn about tantrums. The language helped my children express how they felt from as young as two. Really a very sweet book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A story with a strong moral 9 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This is an ideal story for kids who would rather play and mess about than get to sleep at night. Bad Mood Bear falls out with all the grownups the morning after he was late to bed, and ends up taken to his room for a nap after being very naughty. Then in the afternoon all is well again. My son (aged 5) can sympathise with both the bear and the long-suffering adults in this story. He always enjoys hearing it, although it tends to be MY choice from the bookshelf rather than his choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Growwwwl. I'm in a bad mood! 10 April 2008
Me and my son love this story - it's just fun and funny. The illustrations are great - the pictures of bear's face when he's in a grump are funny - full of ill humour and bad will towards bearkind!
We particularly like the bit when he's in the garden and yells 'Buzz off' to a fly that's bothering him, which makes grandpa laugh (leading to the leg kicking incident). If you like this story, you should also take a look at 'The Wild Bears', which is also excellent. Enjoy!
