There s music in the air in the Jingle Jangle Jungle! Music has caught the ears of one very sleepy Bear. Bear s friends Moose, Zebra, Lion, and Sheep have formed a band, and since Bear is already awake, they invite him to join. But first, they'll have to find him just the right instrument to play. He tries the drums, the guitar, and the trumpet. Turns out he s a very noisy bear. Then finally he tries the microphone, and it seems Bear has found just the right instrument to play.

About the Author
Nick Bland is the son of an artist and a primary school teacher, and he spent his early childhood climbing haystacks and making mischief in his father's studio. Nick always told family and friends he was going to be a cartoonist and a writer. It was not until 1996, when he stumbled into a bookshop job, that he finally found the medium that would bring those two loves together.
Untrained, he spent the next couple of years reading every picture book that hit the shelves and began honing his style as a storyteller and illustrator. His first book, A monster wrote me a letter was published in Australia in 2005. Since then, Nick has written and illustrated many, many titles, such as I lost my kisses and created the adorable bear that now features in a whole series of books that started with The very cranky bear. He currently lives in Darwin, Australia, and works full-time as an author-illustrator.
