About this deal

I love Helen Cooper: her stories are always thought-provoking and with gorgeously detailed illustrations.

This book is a short story about a boy who believes there is a big brown grizzly bear living under the stairs in his house. Helen Cooper is an author and illustrator whose work includes classic picture books such as The Bear Under the Stairs , Pumpkin Soup , The Baby Who Wouldn’t Go to Bed and Tatty Ratty . The sequence of learning finishes with children making comparisons between real bears and toy bears and using this as the basis for an information report about bears to give to William to help him feel less scared. Children will also understand the power of imagination as it features in this story – is there really a bear under the stairs?We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. A lovely short story with beautiful illustrations about a young boy dealing with a common fear for things lurking in the dark. Eventually the remains of the food let’s of a stench that the rest of the household can smell, when Williams mother decides to investigate they find that the cellar is rather empty.

Her books have been translated into 26 languages and won many awards including the Library Association Kate Greenaway Medal – twice. This book is certainly ideal for a classroom wherein the promotion of discussion is hoping to be established. I like how it progresses from his initial feelings of fear and how he attempts to cope with it in his own way, to then sharing his fears with someone who helps to overcome it. When I read this with my 3-year-old nephew, we talk about options the little boy has to deal with the 'bear. es erzählt auf liebevolle weise, wie die phantasie von kindern alles mögliche heraufbeschwören kann(in diesem fall einen riesengrossen bären unter der treppe)und was dabei herauskommt.Helen Cooper is an author and illustrator whose work includes classic titles such as The Bear Under the Stairs, Pumpkin Soup, The Baby Who Wouldn’t Go to Bed and Tatty Ratty. It’s a chronological narrative using lots of alliteration, rhythm and rhyme – it’s really a poetry book as well as a story.
