Overview

Every year the little town of Yellowtooth celebrates the New Year with a Blueberry Muffin Festival. But every year, the festivities come under a shadow cast by Irving and Muktuk, two polar bears whose badness is equaled only by their thick-headedness.

These bears are muffin-pilferers of the worst kind. Therefore, they have to contend with Officer Bunny, who is the law in Yellowtooth. Officer Bunny is wise in the ways of the North, and knows how to protect a muffin. As the years go by, Irving and Muktuk's muffin-getting schemes turn more and more devious, keeping Officer Bunny on his toes as he tries to figure out what to do with the crafty though dimwitted bears once and for all.

Two muffin-loving polar bears make a yearly attempt to use stealth and subterfuge to get muffins at the Yellowtooth Blueberry Muffin Festival.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Following up on their Larry books, in which the Pinkwaters chronicled a polar bear's hankering for blueberry muffins, Irving and Muktuk: Two Bad Bears by Daniel Pinkwater, illus. by Jill Pinkwater, showcases the town of Yellowtooth as it celebrates the New Year with a Blueberry Muffin Festival. Inevitably, shifty-eyed Irving and Muktuk sneak in, costumed as penguins, chefs or "extremely large, hairy blueberry muffins." Officer Bunny is finally driven to ship them to a zoo in Bayonne, N.J., "the muffin capital of the world." (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
In this follow-up to their Larry picture books (the polar bear with a hankering for blueberry muffins), the Pinkwaters showcase the town of Yellowtooth as it celebrates the New Year with a Blueberry Muffin Festival-starring the shifty-eyed bears costumed as penguins, chefs or "extremely large, hairy blueberry muffins." Ages 4-8. (Aug.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Return once again to the far north, dear friends, where Officer Bunny of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has his paws full keeping villainous polar bears from eating up Yellowtooth's annual Blueberry Muffin Festival. With cleverness, wit and the assistance of hot muffins and a helicopter, the unregenerate Irving and Muktuk are ferried into the Arctic wilds again—and again—and again. That the ultimate solution to these problem bears can only be found in Bayonne, New Jersey, should come as no surprise to Pinkwater fans. Cult writer and NPR columnist Pinkwater has a passion for polar bears, and food and Bayonne. It is a funny passion. And Jill Pinkwater's bright, cheerful illustrations perfectly compliment her husband's mindset. 2001, Houghton Mifflin, $15.00. Ages 2 to 6. Reviewer:Kathleen Karr
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Think of this story as a children's version of Northern Exposure with a sweet tooth. Irving and Muktuk are two bumbling polar bears with a craving for blueberry muffins. It is New Year's Eve in the town of Yellowtooth, where the townsfolk arrive on dogsleds, snowshoes, and skis to celebrate the annual Blueberry Muffin Festival. Enter Officer Bunny, who is eager to uphold the law and protect the muffins from the two outlaw bears. Witty text mingles well with the comical illustrations done in felt-tip marker and ink. Children will laugh at the disguises used by these intruders trying to outwit the law. Cleverly written, this story would make a great read-aloud.-Karen J. Tannenbaum, Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library, IN Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
From the Publisher
"The Pinkwaters are a hoot in all the best ways: odd but canny, droll but jazzy... A hpleasurably eccentric story, open to very theatrical readings, and what wry illustrations—a combination, like time and money, that works." Kirkus Reviews, Starred
