Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A boy with a vivid imagination turns lunchtime into an occasion for splendiferous adventures. Ages 3-7. (Sept.)
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 A young schoolboy dawdles over his lunchtime bowl of noodle soup. After his mother urges him to eat, he spoons the letters B-E-A-R from the soup, and instantly a bear appears, looking somewhat like the honey container on the table. The boy and the bear begin a series of adventures, all of which involve items from the lunch tablea salt shaker becomes a wizard; a teacup becomes a sailboat; a bowl of fruit, a mountain. All of these appear when the boy fishes out appropriate letters from his soup. Illustrations add a dreamy quality to the narration. Soft pastels are washed with textured blue oil paint. Text is printed on honey-colored panels, over which tumble alphabet noodles. An exciting adventure with extra appeal to daydreamers. Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
