The star of the bestselling The Very Cranky Bear is back, and this time he's facing Boris the Water Buffalo in a battle of bravery!

He's been cranky, hungry, and itchy - and now Bear will need to prove that he is truly brave.

While balancing in the bog, Bear is startled (but not frightened!) by Buffalo. He is a brave bear, but could Buffalo be even braver? A challenge begins, with great feats of bravery, but when the two competitors find themselves in front of a very scary cave, they will have to find a way to be very brave together.

Vibrant illustrations and a fun rhyming story make this book perfect for reading aloud!
