Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In this hilarious sequel to "Where's My Teddy?" Eddie and his mom leave for a picnic in the woods--the same woods where Eddie ran into a great big bear. Eddie's mother insists there are no bears, but Eddie knows better. When Eddie's mother leaves to get the blueberry pie, guess who comes out smelling good things to eat?

Toddlers will enjoy the silly illustrations and minimal, rhyming text.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``We don't get great big bears around here,'' says Eddie's mother as she unpacks a picnic lunch in the woods. But when she leaves Eddie and his teddy Freddie to retrieve the blueberry pie she's forgotten, an enormous bear gobbles up all the food and asks what's for dessert. ``Oh, please,'' whimpers Eddie, hiding inside the picnic basket, ``don't let it be me.'' In this comical sequel to Where's My Teddy? both Eddie and the reader can see the bear looming menacingly behind Eddie's mother as she confidently assures him that there are no bears in the woods. While the plot is not as surprising nor the text as rhythmic as Alborough's earlier teddy book, his talent for broad visual humor allows him to make the most of the comedic premise. Cartoon-like panels draw out the action as the bear leans over and slowly opens the picnic basket. The suspense is just scary enough for preschoolers, who will love the pie-in-the-sky ending in which both the bear and Eddie's mother get their just deserts. Ages 3-up. (Nov.)
Publishers Weekly
Jez Alborough's It's the Bear! returns in a board-book format; PW called this tale of shared human-ursine fright "just scary enough for preschoolers, who will love the pie-in-the-sky ending in which both the bear and the boy's mother get their just deserts." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Eddie is not anxious to accompany his mother on a picnic in the woods because he knows there's a hungry bear out there. Mom thinks he is being silly, and has no qualms about leaving him alone for a few minutes while she runs home to get the blueberry pie she forgot. Of course she's barely out of sight when the huge brown bear smells the food and Eddie has to jump into the picnic basket to hide. As the creature begins to look for dessert, in the basket, Mom returns and manages somehow not to notice it. In a classic slapstick scene, she stands with her back to the slavering animal, who snatches the pie and runs (teddy bear in tow) in one direction, while mother and son run in another. The rhyming text is neatly boxed on each panel of illustration, which may be one scene or more on each two-page spread. The large format and colorful cartoons make this a good choice for reading aloud. A stand-alone sequel to Eddie's earlier adventure, Where's My Teddy?

    A Favorite!

    Both of my kids have loved this book. It's fun for a parent to read also, with rhyming throughout the book. It is a must have!
