Marco, Master of Disguise by Gerry Boland
Published by O’Brien Press, 2012.

Most of Patrick’s class had a pet of some sort. Lots had dogs, and a fair few had cats, budgies and goldfish. But no one he knew had a grizzly bear sleeping in their garden shed, or sat beside one most nights watching TV. Marco wasn't a pet, of course. He was Patrick’s best friend.

The pair triumph in covering up the presence of a grizzly bear in Patrick’s house in the most ingenious ways possible.

Marco, Master of Disguise is an absurd and hilarious tale of real friendship that will have beginner independent readers quickly turning the pages.

It is a Yellow Flag reader from O’Brien Press specially written to appeal to children aged six or seven who can read stories with chapters and slightly longer sentences. Yellow flag books are full of humour and illustrations which capture the imagination of young readers and enhance the reading experience.

The first book in the series Marco Moves In was shortlisted for The Irish Book Awards. Look out for a third title in the series Marco Moonwalker coming soon
