In the Jingle Jangle Jungle on a cold and rainy day, four little friends found a perfect place to play.

Moose had marvellous antlers and Lion, a golden mane. Zebra had fantastic stripes and Sheep . . . well, Sheep was plain.

When four friends encounter a cranky bear, Moose, Lion and Zebra all think they know how to cheer him up.

But it is plain, boring Sheep who has the answer.

Vibrant illustrations and a fun, engaging story make this book perfect for reading aloud.

The sequel, The Very Itchy Bear, was published in August 2010.

Nick Bland

Nick Bland was born on a farm in the Australian Yarra Valley in 1973. The son of an artist and a primary school teacher, he spent his early childhood climbing haystacks and making mischief in his father's studio. When he moved to “the bush” at age 6, he discovered a wonderful new world and his creativity bloomed.

Nick always told family and friends he was going to be a cartoonist and a writer. It wasn't until 1996, when he stumbled into a bookshop job, that he finally found the medium that would bring those two loves together. Untrained, he spent the next couple of years reading every picture book that hit the shelves and began honing his style as a storyteller and illustrator.

He illustrated several readers before sending A Monster Wrote Me a Letter to Scholastic Australia in 2001. Since then, Nick has written and illustrated many, many titles, such as I Lost My Kisses and created the adorable bear that now features in a whole series of books that started with The Very Cranky Bear.

He lives in tropical Darwin, where he works as a guardian for 120 aboriginal boys who board nearby. He loves both of his jobs and hopes to combine them in the near future.

    I only found this book after I found the app and I LOVE it! Kids love the rhyming and it has a lovely message about kindness and being humble and thoughtful and how these things triumph over being 'fancy'. Lovely story :)
