Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The furry creature in the title is not actually a bear; he's a lovable husky pup who was abandoned by his sled-dog racing team. Quite understandably, ten-year-old Lizzie falls in love with him and rescues him from dog kennel prison. But can she find him a home? In the 14th installment of Puppy Place, the answer is buoyantly affirmative.
Children's Literature - Melissa Rife
Lizzie Peterson is a super dog lover, and her family regularly fosters dogs until they find good homes for them. Even when they go on vacation to Vermont, Lizzie finds a Husky named Bear to care for. As the snow falls at the cabin where they are staying, Lizzie first has to find Bear when he is lost in the storm, and then experiences what it is like to be a musher, who leads sled dogs. Through her experiences, Lizzie eventually finds a place for Bear to stay. Although sometimes a bit corny, the story is cute, simple, and a good read for younger kids. The vocabulary is not overly complicated, but still challenges the reader to learn new words such as "Iditarod" and "mushing." With mainly female main characters, the book is better suited for girls. At the end of the book, the author also includes a page of information about Huskies and the jobs that they do. Also included is a note about how she does research for her books. This is one of a number of books in the "Puppy Place" series. Each book features a different dog and that dog's story. Reviewer: Melissa Rife

    Very interesting book!

    My 8-year-old daughter loved this book because she thinks it gave a lot of information about huskies and the characters were entertaining. This book helps to teach children that if you try really hard at things, you can and will get better. Also, the main characters, Lizzie and Charles help needy dogs to find good homes. Overall, good lessons to learn! My daughter loves dogs, and this series is a wonderful dog series for children from 6-10 years old.

    Bear is sooooooooooooooooo cute! He is a huskey. Huskeys are very smart. They pull sleds. We watched a movie called Stone Fox. Shearchlight Willy's dog died a hundred feet from the finish line in the race. When Willy got home he found Grandfather with another dog for Willy.
