Amazon Review

This Big Book edition is perfect for sharing with groups of all ages.

This is an imaginative and magical picture book by award-winning author/illustrator Jill Murphy, creator of Peace at Last, A Quiet Night In and other stories featuring the Large family.

Baby Bear wants to go to the moon and so searches around the house until he finds a rocket (a cardboard box), a space-helmet (a colander) and space-boots (his wellies). All set, he blasts off out of the chimney and into the night. Joined by an owl, Baby Bear soars high into the night sky until finally they reach the moon. Of course, when he returns to earth for his bath, his mother doesn't believe where he has been.

Jill Murphy captures Baby Bear's sense of high adventure and his innocence, as he reaches for his dream, in both the simple easy-to-read-aloud text and in the bold, colourful illustrations. (Ages 3 and over).

A regular size edition of this story is also available. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Always loved reading this book to my three children for bedtime, one of their favourites. So bought this for a friend with a new baby so they can enjoy it too. Be warned though it is seriously sleep inducing and I only have to look at the book and it makes me yawn - seriously; all those years of conditioning I guess!

Jill Murphy books are mostly all good but this is a personal favourite. One of our favourite bedtime books. Suitable from 18 months and still enoyable much later.

Here is a school series with a twist! Among the witches' broomsticks and cauldrons is a story of friendship and loyalty with a spunky central character.
It's a charming story.....lacking the depth and cosmic dimension of Harry Potter, but light and fun none the less.

Lovely story for my eight-year old daughter. It's funny and a bit suspenseful, if a bit simplistic. She enjoyed it, and I enjoyed reading it to her.

Ordered at 11am and got it at 5pm in brand new condition. Incredible service. My mum read this book to me when I was young so I now have it to read to my own little one. He's just a newborn just now but building a small collection so we can read to him every night when he's a wee bit older
