My Bear Griz by Suzanne McGuinness
Published November 2011, Walker Books
From the publisher:
Billy has a bear called Griz. A Grizzly Bear. And the two friends have all kinds of wonderful adventures together. They go exploring, play hide and seek, eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches, share secrets and tell jokes. Griz is the best friend a boy could possibly have - whether he's a Grizzly Bear or a teddy bear…
This is a very simple picture book that celebrates imagination. The text is simple and the slightly larger than normal format is perfect to capture the great big grizzly bear.
