Submitter: This one is just plain funny the way the author organized the book. The pictures of the bears are pure comedy, particularly the ones I scanned for you. Unfortunately, I can’t find any more from this author. Apparently, their life’s work was complete after this masterpiece.
Holly: The poor bears are pretty funny. I’m no child psychologist, but maybe a picture book about a difficult situation helps a child better understand what is happening to him. Maybe using animals makes it all less threatening than depicting humans. The only real problem I have with this book is that the vocabulary seems to be for older children. A child young enough to have a picture book read to him may not understand some of the phrasing used here. Otherwise, it isn’t the worst thing.
