Everyone knows how rude and grumpy bears can be if they don't get enough sleep! When a bad-tempered bear trips over a tiny turtle, no-one can foresee the consequence. When Turtle challenges Bear to a race along the lakeshore, Bear is confident about the outcome. But Turtle is smarter than Bear can imagine... Celebrated writer and story-teller Andrew Fusek Peters brings out all the comedy and ingenuity of this traditional Native American trickster tale.

Andrew Fusek Peters has written and edited over 80 books, many critically acclaimed. He has performed his children's poetry on Radio and TV and features on the Poetry Archive.

Alison Edgson is a freelance illustrator, originally from Northern Ireland. She trained in Visual Communication at the University of Ulster in Belfast. She lives in the beautiful Wye Valley AONB.

I think that the book is saying that bigger is not always better and that if you use your brains you can outsmart people. The Bear thought that he would win but the Turtle used his brains. However, I did really like Bear and I thought that the turtles were cheating because there were so many of them. I really enjoyed the book and the pictures were nice. I will read this again and again. - Amy, 7, Betty Bookmark
