“Is your bath bubbly enough? Is your bed bouncy enough? Is your cereal crunchy enough? Don’t delay—call Sneaky Beak today for deals beyond your wildest dreams!” When Bear sees a commercial advertising the Snores-Galore Mega Bed, the “bounciest bed ever,” he decides that he wants one. The salesbird, Sneaky Beak, shows up and convinces Bear that he needs the Super-Whirl Turbo Tub and the Crunch-O-Matic Granola Maker, too—not to mention a trip in his vacation rocket to get away from it all.

Tracey is originally from South Wales. She worked as a teacher until her first daughter was born, when she left teaching to spend time being a “mum.” She later returned to working at a school, where she delivered a specialist literacy program and helped students who had been out of school long-term with illness reintegrate into the school system. This experience sparked her own interest in writing. Today, she lives in what she calls an ancient cottage in a “hidden valley surrounded by sheep, wild deer and cows with big fluffy ears!”
