The New York Times Book Review…Dorémus keeps things bouncing along at a very fast clip. The muted colors of red, blue, yellow and green and the crosshatched line illustrations combine to create a surreal landscape, quite appropriate for the action. Certainly American artists have shown creatures being gobbled by the protagonist—as Jules Feiffer did in Bark, George. But this bear really devours his enemies; his emotional rage matches that of Max in Where the Wild Things Are. No lessons and no morals are attached—just a screaming childhood id. The bear wants his teddy and will do anything to get it!
