“The advance copies of the first two books in Nosy Crow’s Bizzy Bear series have arrived in the office, and very fine they look too. Bizzy Bear: Fun on the Farm and Bizzy Bear: Let’s Go and Play both publish on 9 March.
Pictured here is one small boy absorbed in Bizzy Bear: Let’s Go and Play, having first fetched his own football because it’s just like Bizzy Bear’s. He enjoyed the sturdy, imaginative push-and-pull tabs and sliders and especially loved the being able to pass the ball from Bizzy Bear to his friend and back again. We stayed on that page for some time. Never has spot-the-ball been so much fun, for child or parent!”
