It was my mum's 50th birthday on Wednesday. Things you need to know about my mum: she's an infant school teacher and she's a little obsessed with salsa dancing.

Do you know the children's poem We're Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen? Well, Mum loves doing that poem with her class. And her infinitely imaginative friend Helen decided to re-write the poem in honour of tonight's birthday party (which, needless to say, will involve a salsa band and lots of dancing...). Anyway, Helen asked if I'd mind turning it in to some sort of illustrated book. This is the result:

I also made a card...

Anyway, I best go get my dancing shoes at the ready. Should be a good night.
