What’s More Scary than a Shark?

Author: Paul Bright
Illustrator: Michael Terry

This was another chance to work with the wonderful illustrator Michael Terry. I thought a shark story would suit his colourful style, so I tried various scary, sharky stories, and this one worked out the best. Scary Shark falls in love with Sadie Shark. The lobster tells him that ladies like presents, but Scary Shark’s presents don’t work out as he had hoped. He keeps trying, and finds out that lady sharks can be pretty scary too!

Grumpy Badger’s Christmas

This is another book with wonderful illustrations of woodland animals by Jane Chapman. Grumpy Badger is rather like Ebenezer Scrooge in the story ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens – he doesn’t like Christmas. Grumpy Badger prefers to go to bed and hibernate all winter.

The Bears in the Bed and the Great Big Storm

Author: Paul Bright
Illustrator: Jane Chapman

I wrote this story when the people at Little Tiger Press said there was a chance to work with Jane Chapman, who does wonderful animal illustrations. I tried various stories about bears – bears up a tree, bears eating honey, and gradually decided on bears in a storm. The younger bears are scared of the storm and think they can hear monsters outside. They all crawl into bed with Bear, who reassures them that ‘There’s no such thing as monsters!’. But when there’s a knock at the door, Bear isn’t so sure.

This book is also available with a CD featuring narration by Justin Fletcher (CBeebie’s Mr Tumble) and Sophie Thompson.
