The Grizzly Itch

A charming story about a blossoming friendship between a bear with an itch and a well-meaning beaver who wants to help.

When Bear wakes up from his winter sleep, he discovers an itch. And not just any itch - an unBEARable Grizzly Itch! But when he gets to his favourite scratching tree, it suddenly crashes to the ground. It turns out Beaver likes trees too.

Thankfully, Beaver knows lots of other trees, and promises to help Bear find a new one. But Bear's itch is getting more grizzly by the minute, and none of the trees Beaver show him are quite right. Maybe it's not a tree Bear needs, after all?

A gorgeous debut by author-illustrator Victoria Cassanell, The Grizzly Itch is an endearing, funny tale of two animals and their journey of discovery, perfect for teaching children how to navigate first friendships.

Victoria Cassanell graduated with a degree in illustration from the Hull School of Art and Design. For her final project, Victoria created a picture book which led her to embark on a Children's Book Illustration MA at the Cambridge School of Art. Victoria loves drawing characters then creating stories and settings around them. The Grizzly Itch is her debut picture book. Victoria currently lives in Yorkshire.
