A funny, rhyming picture book to celebrate Dad bears everywhere - the perfect gift for Father's Day!

Ssshhhh! Don't wake Dad!

Bear cubs, Obi and Nadia, are throwing a surprise party for their sleepy (but amazing) dad. They've got balloons to blow up, cakes to make, and they've invited all of their woodland friends and family.

Dad is sound asleep and snoring in bed, so it's vital that he doesn't wake up before everything is ready. But with so many noisy guests, instruments, party poppers and balloons, can the cubs get the party ready before dad wakes up?

This rhyming, riotous picture book is perfect for sharing together and ends with a heart-warming celebration of dads and all the amazing things they do!

Disclaimer: Remember not to wake a bear - all dads need their rest!
