Product Details

Praise

You know, bears may stand for adults in some way, because they’re big, they’re ungainly, they’re goofy. They’re like most of us grownups. But the bear in this book paws down; he’s got to be the dimmest, most slow-witted, brilliantly stupid bear to come along in years. I really love him.
—NPR Weekend Edition

A marvelous book in the true dictionary sense of "marvel": it is a wonderful and astonishing thing, the kind of book that makes child laugh and adult chuckle, and both smile in appreciation. A charmingly wicked little book.
—The New York Times

Four pages into this charmer, every kindergartner will know where the bear’s missing hat is – but they’ll never predict the hilarious revenge he takes on the thief.
—People Magazine

Deliberately understated, with delectable results… Skillful characterizations; though they’re simply drawn and have little to say, each animal emerges fully realized.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
