Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3 Up- Stan and Jan Berenstain met in art school and collaborated on cartoons about children and family life for magazines such as McCall's and Collier's . There was even a short-lived comic strip titled Sister ; the title character was an early prototype for Sister Bear in the "Berenstain Bears" series. This book collects the couple's early work, from the late 1940s through the early '60s. Children may be drawn to this attractively packaged book's brightly colored pages and illustrations, but the content will appeal more to adults, especially to baby boomers.-Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
