One morning Theo decides he is no longer human. “I’m a GRIZZLY! I’m WILD AND FREE!” But being a grizzly boy isn’t easy if you still have to go to school.
A fun, endearing, and sweet picture book, Grizzly Boy will have “wild and free” little grizzlies everywhere asking for repeat readings.
One day Theo wakes up and decides he’s a grizzly bear. He leaps out of bed, practices his growl . . . and his roar. . . and scratches his bottom on the bedpost. “Oh my! That’s very convincing,” his mother responds.
When Theo finds a bowl of lettuce and berries for breakfast instead of his favorite Frosted Monster Bites cereal, he is still determined to have a day that’s wild and free, but he finds it’s more difficult than he expected, especially when you have a clever mother and still have to go to school where there are rules and more rules!
After a challenging day as a grizzly boy at school, Theo learns you can follow the rules and still enjoy being wild and free!
