Get ready for a collection of madcap narratives about a rather remarkable grizzly bear!

Marco Moves In – It’s not every day that a grizzly bear turns up on your doorstep, asking for a cup of tea. And when that grizzly happens to have escaped from the zoo, it makes things very complicated. How can Patrick hide Marco from his inquisitive neighbours and from the police? But Marco proves to be a most unusual bear – and very good company too. Maybe he’ll stay? Marco: Master of Disguise – It’s nearly five months since Marco moved in with Patrick and his mum, and it’s been a struggle to keep him hidden. The zoo is still looking for him and there are ‘wanted’ posters all over town. So, when FIVE unexpected visitors turn up, one after the other, on the same day, just how will Marco manage to fool them all? You’ll be surprised! Marco: Moonwalker –After escaping from the zoo and coming to live with Patrick and his mum, Marco proves to have many talents. Now Patrick discovers that Marco is also a musical genius – he can play the trombone, banjo and even dance like Michael Jackson! ‘Let’s start a band’, Patrick says, and Marco becomes a STAR. Then disaster strikes. He is spotted without his mask and brought back to the zoo. How will Patrick and Mum get him out again?

'It can be a struggle to find books that will engage six-to-eight year olds, but one sure to capture their imaginations is Gerry Boland’s debut, Marco Moves In.'
Sunday Independent
