Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Little Tricker must think quickly when the double-hungry bear ``comestet kabooming through the Bottom like a freight druvstet by the Devil himself, or at least his next hottest hollerer''--and indeed he does, concocting a scheme that not only outwits the bear but forever puts an end to his rampages. This tall tale from the Ozarks serves as a fine vehicle for Kesey ( One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest ; Sometimes a Great Notion ), proving ample enough for his quirky vision and his freewheeling use of language--his dialogue crackles, his forceful images and metaphors tumble one after another in an inexorable rush. Moser's watercolors capture the strange, strong flavor of the tale and provide emphatic, snapshot-like portraits of its characters. His view of Big Double, for example--dressed in jeans, T-shirt and wool cap; potbellied, with a twig drooping cigarette-like from his mouth; and leaning belligerently on a post--leaves no doubt that the bear is, as Tricker shrewdly calculates, a simple rough-hewn bully with far more brawn than brains. All ages. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-- Big Double the Bear comes down from the high ridges one fine fall morning, terrorizing the creatures of Topple's Bottom until Tricker the Squirrel defeats him through courage and cunning. The characters are reminiscent of those in the Brer Rabbit stories, and the plot is similar to ``Sody Salleratus'' from Richard Chase's Grandfather Tales (Houghton, 1973). But this story is Kesey's own, told in a vigorous, colorful style that invites reading aloud, demonstrating how much new life can be breathed into old stories with rich and vital language. His style brings each character into sharp focus, and that style is perfectly matched by Moser's sly, witty, and wonderfully evocative full-page watercolors, among his best yet, employing varying perspectives and a highly effective use of light and shadow. An exceptionally well-designed book with a fine juxtaposition of text, pictures, and generous margins, this one is sure to be a favorite. --Connie C. Rockman, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT
