About the book:
Toy Story meets Gremlins in this hilarious, rhythmic family caper where Daddy ignores a washing label and Bear comes alive! Bear has a very clear label sewn under his bottom. It says Do not wash this bear! But when Daddy puts him through a spin cycle anyway, a very naughty Bear comes out - one who causes mischief and mayhem all around the house! Father and son need Mummy to come home and save the day, but will she be back in time to show Bear who's boss before it's too late? With brightly coloured and exciting artwork from the illustrator of the Goodnight series, this is an action-packed story with rhythmic, funny text perfect for reading aloud to boys and girls who love their teddies and a little bit of mischief.
