Nothing Can Frighten a Bear

author: Elizabeth Dale
illustrator: Paula Metcalf

Daddy Bear insists he’s the scariest creature in the forest — didn’t you know that nothing can frighten a bear? When a noise in the night awakens Baby Bear, he starts to believe maybe there is something scarier out there than Daddy Bear. The bears set out to investigate. But as the monsters vanish one by one, it looks like Daddy Bear might not be so brave after all! This hilarious, rhyming text about bedtime frights is a perfect read-aloud with a funny refrain.

"Gives caregivers a new response in their arsenal of answers to the nighttime question 'What was that noise?'" - Kirkus Reviews

author’s comments:
Elizabeth Dale always dreamed of being a writer, but somehow got sidetracked into studying for a physics degree. When her children were born, she returned to her dream and found she loved writing children’s books more than anything. She loves traveling and seeking inspiration for her stories. Having seen what a wonderful life she leads, two of her daughters have grown up to be children’s authors, too. Elizabeth Dale lives in West Sussex, England.
illustrator’s comments:
Paula Metcalf has written and illustrated many children’s books, and she’s been doing so for a very long time. (Her parents still own an early original illustrated poem, the short but pithy “Pin in Tin,” penned at age four.) She went on to study illustration at the Cambridge School of Art in England, where she is currently a visiting lecturer in the master’s program in children’s book illustration. Paula Metcalf lives in Cambridge, England.
