Synopsis

When Grandfather bear has his two little grandchildren to stay he is sure that they are going to be very good indeed. No trouble at all in fact. So he tucks them up in bed, goes downstairs to read his book and even feels so proud of his ideally behaved grandchildren that he plans to take them on a picnic the next day. But as we all know, love is blind, and in this grandfathers case, deaf as well! A brilliant picture book that will entertain and amuse old and young alike as words and pictures do not always tell the same story.

Readers will chuckle at the discrepancy between the text—in which Grandfather Bear describes how well-behaved his visiting grandbears are—and the illustrations, which clearly depict the little darlings getting into all sorts of mischief behind his back.
