Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Dynamic compositions and jolly palette allow us not take this anxious story too seriously while chalky textures and simple patterns keep the images bold and varied viewpoints keep the scale lively. Wonderfully quirky.' - Jana Novotny Hunter, Books for Keeps'Some very distinctive bears, full of life and just scary enough without frightening the bed-time reader too much.' - Anne Rooney, armadillomagazine.com'Engaging tale with lots of detail and character expression to pore over. Another excellent, amusing winner.' - Peters'Very funny tale brilliantly illustrated to catch the eye of all little folk and disbelieving adults.' - The Teacher
