Product Description

Murphy returns to the lovable Bear family of Peace at Last and Whatever Next for a third slice of family life, in which the Bears have had a day we can all identify with - in lockdown more than ever, I suspect.

Delicious.Jill Murphy, the author of mum-championing classics such as Peace at Last, has brought out her first picture book for 40 years. It describes the sort of day any family can relate to: baby bear is late for nursery, mummy bear breaks her glasses, and daddy bear spills his coffee at work. The carpe diem sentiment is distilled through Murphy’s lovely rhyme and repetitionIn more down-to-earth vein, from earlier in the autumn, Jill Murphy’s Just One of Those Days (Macmillan) features the beloved Bear family on a day fraught with mishaps – spilled coffee, squashed glasses, nursery quarrels – followed by consolatory shared pizza and the reflection that it was, after all, just one of those days.
