Bear & Hare Go Fishing

Part of Bear & Hare
Illustrated by Emily Gravett

Two adorable animal pals embark on a quietly humorous adventure of fishing and friendship in this start to a new picture book series from Emily Gravett.

Friends Bear and Hare are going fishing. While Hare is putting together a picnic, Bear enthusiastically fishes…a hat. Then…a roller skate. Will Bear ever hook an actual fish? Maybe a little help from Hare can turn things around.

Told and illustrated with Emily Gravett’s characteristic flair, this picture book for young readers is the perfect companion to friends of all sorts.
