Review: Michael Rosen, Bear Hunt Experience, Liverpool

We are big Michael Rosen fans. I remember our drama teacher in primary school reading The Chocolate Cake and I remember thinking how amazing it was. Warren has Michael Rosen books that are literally thirty years old on the kids' bookshelf. So, as you can imagine, we were delighted to be asked to attend the launch of Michael Rosen's Going on a Bear Hunt experience.

The exhibition promises to be a look inside Michael Rosen's mind and is in a purpose-built installation in Liverpool One. The launch was in Waterstones where we were served champagne and of course, lots of yummy chocolate cake!

Maybe the most exciting thing for us was the fact that Michael Rosen himself was going to be at the launch. We are massive fans and we wanted to get our books signed by the man himself. At the opening, Michael said a few words about the importance of reading, of books and creating for our children. We then grabbed him to sign our books. It was great and he was lovely.




The exhibition itself is a walk through Michael Rosen's mind. Inside you will find Michael Rosen's house, his school, and of course a wood where you can actually go on a bear hunt! I will let the pictures show you what you might find!







Overall I would say that this a is a great exhibition for fans of Michael Rosen. There was a real sense of family history in the installation and perhaps a sense of where the ideas come from, the imagination and the lived experience that is all around us. The kids had a brilliant time, we really enjoyed this.

Disclosure: We were invited to the launch event and to the exhibition free of charge for the purpose of this review. All words and views are our own.
