Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
Hares don't usually hunt bears, but this British author-illustrator team tries to add some unusual touches to a bear hunt story: Hare buys a large bear-hunting manual and enlists his reluctant rabbit friend Rumbly to go along. Long, lean Hare contrasts sharply with short, chubby Rumbly as the friends set out, consulting their book every step of the way. (The forest is more cheery than scary, with its bright yellow-green foliage and purple flowers.) There is some amusing wordplay in the text, with variations on the words bear, Hare, very, hairy, and scary, but the story, moving along in suspense, suddenly falls apart when a bear does appear—unfortunately, he is hairy, but not very scary. The next scene looks as if it's from another story altogether when the chubby cub waves good-bye and pads into a cozy cottage (reminiscent of The Three Bears) for beans on toast with his smiling mother. Despite a warning in the book (shades of the fate befalling Peter Rabbit's father!), it is hard to imagine the friends would dash off in panic when the danger's already over. Maybe there is opportunity for literary discussion if listeners are familiar with the Going on a Bear Hunt game, Beatrix Potter's Peter, and the story of Goldilocks (British preschoolers may be more responsive to baked beans on toast and rabbit pie than Americans), but otherwise, this anticlimactic tale is more "Much Ado About Nothing."

Hare loves bears and wants to catch one. He gets a copy of The Best Book of Bear Hunting and starts following the necessary steps. Bring a friend ("Choose one that looks much fatter than you!"), gather the right equipment, and begin trailing the bear. Watch for footprints and listen for sounds. Hare's friend Rumbly Rabbit questions the wisdom of the entire endeavor, but the two follow the instructions word for word. After a while they come face to face with a cub that growls, "I'm hungry!" That's bad news for rabbits, but suddenly the bear's mama calls him for dinner and he runs home. The two rabbits turn to the last page of the book, which informs them that bears love to eat rabbits. That causes them to scamper on home themselves. The pictures are large and clear. The rabbits look soft and cuddly, as do the bears. The background is lush and green, and the woods are full of blooming flowers. It's all very cheerful, but it's never clear why Hare has such a fixation on catching a bear. Despite the endearing illustrations, this book is not a first purchase.-Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI
