    A Bear Named Trouble A kids book review A Bear Named Trouble by Marion Dane Bauer. Is not one of my favorite books. If you like stories about animals and tells you how they live. This book is realistic fiction. This story is about a boy named John that is 11 years old. He goes to Alaska to visit his dad. Who is the zookeeper for the Alaskan zoo. John always goes to the zoo and feeds corn and grains to his favorite animal in the zoo. The white goose. John loves this goose so much. John also loves other animals, he likes animals so much that he even slips inside of them. As in he imagines he is inside there body living the way they do. Then a bear comes into the picture. And I think you know his name. it¿s trouble! Because that is what he does causes trouble. John is a boy that is kind of shy. He has some friends at school, but he doesn¿t have them come over. And he keeps them away from his life at the zoo. John¿s dad is sort of a strict man. He likes to be the boss of everything. He is kind of mean to John, but sill loves him very much. And trouble is what they would call a brownie in Alaska. Which means a black bear. He is only a little cub, but he is still very powerful. One of my favorite parts is when the bear is investigating the woods near the zoo. There was a mother moose with her baby. The bear (trouble) bumped into her. So the mother moose thought trouble was trying to hurt here baby cub. So the frightened moose, butted: as in kick him in the face with the two back legs. Butted him in the jaw. Even though it wasn¿t that forceful It was still powerful enough to break the lower jaw. Trouble ran and ran into the forest. Far far away, but stopping every single forty-fifty seconds. To paw at the agonizing pain! I really liked this part of the book because the author put so much detail into it. That I could really picture him running threw the forest and feel the pain of the burning jaw dripping with blood. I would recommend this book to someone that likes reading books about animals and how they live. This story is very good, but it just wasn¿t that good for me, but how do I know that this book may not be good for you. So I think you should just try and pick up this book. You might like it. Because this story is a story about an animal¿s life and how they live. So if you are a person that likes stories about animals and how they live then this story is good for you.
