A story about a bear, his sandwich, an inconveniently-placed rock, and a very bumpy journey down a hill. This riotously enjoyable adventure has been developed and tested by Ben Newman (illustrator of the bestselling Professor Astro Cat series) with his own preschool children.

The bear is looking forward to eating his yummy sandwich. But suddenly – BUMP! – he trips on a rock. And – FLUMP! – he starts tumbling down the hill, and into the path of some unsuspecting creatures...

Turn the special cut-away pages and enjoy the rhythmic, onomatopoeic words in this joyfully boisterous story, perfect for reading aloud and sharing with young children.

A deceptively simple story about unexpected friendships, sharing and adventure!
