There's A Book

No Bears by Meg McKinlay and Illustrated by Leila Rudge

Ella wants to tell you a story – a story with absolutely no bears. You don’t need bears for a book. You need pretty things like fairies and princesses and castles and maybe funny things and exciting things. In Ella’s kind of story, there are no bears in the village or the castle or the deep dark forest or faraway lands. But there might be . . . a monster! Riffing on well-known fairy-tale themes, this fun, offbeat story is perfectly matched by playful illustrations with a running visual joke that will keep even bear lovers smiling.

Ella is in charge of this book, and she will tell you something right now. There are NO BEARS in it. Not even one.

Before I go any further…please, go to the illustrator’s website, Leila Rudge. Isn’t that the most adorable site ever? I love the pigeons!

You simply can’t go wrong with a book from Candlewick Press and this is another gem due out on March 27th this year. We’ve been reading it non-stop for about a week and can’t get enough! We’ll have a full review very soon, but until then…go pre-order it now!
