Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
That lovable character Little Bear, originally created by Else Holmelund Minarik and Maurice Sendak, is back in his first picture book! When Father Bear and his little son go off to the woods, Little Bear meets an orphan cub whose parents were lost in a storm. Determined to help him find Mom and Pop, Little Bear enlists the help of some friends to put up signs around the forest. But when the signs are stolen and they come face to face with a mountain lion, who comes to the rescue? An endearing and adventurous tale just right for storytelling and sharing.
Publishers Weekly
From Little Bear's 1957 debut as the launch title in the I Can Read series to the direct-to-video release of The Little Bear Movie, the ursine hero, originally created by Else Holmelund Minarik and depicted in ink-and-watercolor wash by Maurice Sendak, takes center stage in five picture books by Minarik, based on the Nick Jr animated television series produced by Nelvana (which holds the copyright on the text). Artists chosen by Sendak illustrate the books. In Little Bear's New Friend, illus. by Heather Green, the fellow befriends a wild cub while camping on Pudding Hill. Father's Flying Flapjacks and To Grandmother's House, both illus. by David Wenzel, appear in board book editions, while A Present for Mother Bear and The Search for Spring, both illus. by Chris Hahner, are novelty titles.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-What made the original "Little Bear" books so successful? The spare understatement of Minarik's controlled, easy-reader vocabulary allowed Sendak's detailed, textured, quirky scenes to tell more of the story. The combination was subtle, yet full of warmth, personality, and humor. The current title is a spin-off of the original stories by Minarik, produced by Sendak for television's Nick Jr. Green's watercolors follow the clich -ridden story line closely, mimicking the look of her animated televised counterpart, with uncomplicated, outlined figures and backgrounds. Drab greens, grays, and browns illustrate the woodland scenes. The story follows Little Bear's encounter with an initially competitive, but then immediately friendly, wild cub that has been separated from his parents in a storm. At Little Bear's suggestion, forest friends paint signs, one of which eventually reunites the family. "But all good things must come to an end. Cub's parents had to move on-and with them would go Cub." However, "They knew in their hearts that they would meet again-as all good friends must." Purchase where demand for commercial series merits inclusion-or treat your patrons to fresh copies of the older titles.-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Having jumped from printed page to TV screen, Little Bear now jumps back, with a fresh adventure written by the author of the originals, but a new illustrator and format. The result may leave readers confused: first, by the admission of another bear cub whom Little Bear meets on a camping trip that he "lost" his parents in a storm. They are alive, as it turns out, and reappear just in time to save the two friends from a mountain lion. Second, Green colors the two unclothed cubs inconsistently, even leaving them indistinguishable in several scenes. Despite flashes of poker-faced humor that hark back to the classic Sendak-illustrated titles, a cozy ending and even, with the mountain lion stalking the cubs through the tale, some suspense, this patchy, uninspired revival won't win Little Bear any new fans. (Picture book. 5-7)
