WHEN BIG BEARS INVADE

THE MOST CANADIAN BOOK EVER WRITTEN

'Children, children. Gather round, your grandmother and I will tell you of the time before the benevolent bears showed humanity how to live in harmony with the world. A time when humans ran amok, threatening to destroy the very world we all share so happily now. A time when the Big Bears made sure humanity paid attention to their message. And it happened here, in our very own Canada.'

COMING SPRING 2017



Manitoba artist Nyco Rudolph and Alberta writer Alexander Finbow join creative forces to reveal the myth behind how the Benevolent Bears came to rule over us all. An illustrated children's book for adults featuring beautiful Godzilla and King Kong inspired paintings of Giant Bears attacking major Canadian cities and landmarks. Includes Grizzly Bear Colossuses attacking the CN Tower, Spirit Bears surfing the Tsunami into Vancouver, a huge Bearnado ripping into Winnipeg, giant bear cubs playing jump rope with the Mountain Gateway pipeline, Polar Bear Behemoths dropping a glacier on to the oil sands, and the Giant Bears delivering a very Canadian wall to keep the Americans out. At least that's what Granny says really happened.

When Big Bears Invade covered by CBC Radio's The Homestretch

Anna Logan, CBC Radio

'Every page is absolutely gorgeous.'

David, Geek-O-Rama

'At its surface, When Big Bears Invade is simply a fun-filled read [...] however, burbling away beneath the humour is an ethical and environmental story.'

Rob Alexander, Rocky Mountain Outlook

'[A] twisted tribute to Canadiana.'

Eric Volmers, Calgary Herald

'When Big Bears Invade is great for all ages. Plus, it's simply a super fun book. And what better year to have a book like this launch, than during Canada's 150th birthday.' Also catch an interview with illustrator Nyco Rudolph!

Chris Doucher, Geek Nerd Net

'Thanks to lighthearted poems by Finbow and rewarding, detailed art by Rudolph, it’s funnier than it may sound, and there’s a story with a twist, too. A guilty pleasure for disaster movie fans.'

Mike Donachie, Toronto Star

Global News Winnipeg

'Giant bears rampage through Calgary and other Canadian cities'
