Meet the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 260 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' interest in children's books has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.

Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books—even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.

Since Stan's death at age eighty-two in 2005, Jan and Mike have continued to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear. They live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, which looks a lot like Bear Country.

Perfect for summer reading! This is a great 38 page illustrated (b/w) early-reader chapter book with an additional 5 page excerpt of The Berenstain Bears and the Phenom in the Family. I love that ebooks give children instant access to a dictionary so that they are more likely to look up words they aren't familiar with.

I look at this as a cool thing to have in my nook. Always ready to read to kids.

Glad to have something I can share with my grand-kids! They love reading on my nook. Would love more kid friendly titles.

No, this isn't a book for grown-ups and no, this isn't a short little picture book. It is a Berenstein Bears chapter book. It has periodic illustrations to go with the story (which is a typical Berenstein Bears good ole kiddo story with morals and fun characters) and is in chapter form. This would be a great book for parents or grandparents of either preschoolers or perhaps up to third grade. I will be reading this one to my preschooler and I know she will be delighted to have her own big girl book on Mommy's Nook. Thank you, Barnes and Noble, for switching it up and offering us such a great kids' book for our free Friday.

When I was kid, I loved reading The Bernstein Bears. I think this is a good choice for parents to get and read to their kids. It's a classic children's series that's great for every member of the family.:)

Great to have a kid's book for once!  I'm worried it's only for color nooks.

Re :  The book................................... Subject was boring for small children.   They don't like the black and white illustrations.  Was not a hit at my house. Re:  The Free Friday Issue........................................ Contrary to some opinion the Free Friday choice is not something for nothing.   It is a perk for buying the BN nook over a Kindle.   And guess what ?  Giving a children's book over an adult selection is a very poor choice.   I easily purchase over 200 books a year  and though I certainly don't expect Bn to cater to my taste--I do expect them to cater to adult taste.   On occasion I have discovered a new author  through this process.  Sometimes even a style of book I didn't think would interest me.  I also purchase books for my grandchildren and I prefer hardcover for them as they like to read books over and over.   And yes I'm aware they can do that on a nook but I have five grandchildren that live with me and I prefer they not use my e reader.

I think it's free for a reason. Beggars cannot be choosers. You should not rate this down because you do not like this week selection. I'm going to make it useful and read it to my little sister. Have a great day old farts.

This e book version is based on the 1999 book version of the same title. The authors have published more than 250 books in this series with the beloved Berenstain bears. I really enjoyed this book. As a bonus it includes an excerpt from The Berenstain Bears and the Phenom in the Family. At the beginning of the tale we encounter Ralph Ripoff relaxing at home when the doorbell rings. The door opens to reveal that Professor Zoltan Bearish has come to make a proposal. It appears that this is a very unlikely and strange relationship. The Professor is a well respected chemistry professor at the Bearsonian Institution. Why is he coming to engage Ralph Ripoff, the notorious swindler in a scheme? Simply because Zoltan wants revenge! Actual Factual recently had him fired from his position for what Zoltan considered a trivial reason. The reader learns that the well known dinosaur expert, Professor Factual has been searching for years to complete a T-Rex skeleton in the rotunda of the Bearsonian. Zoltan’s plans include faking the discovery of an even greater find, that of a giant dinosaur skeleton. He asks Ralph to find other accomplices and stage a fake digging discovery. Ralph is bothered by this because he does not want to hurt the reputation of an innocent man, but his love of profit wins out over his conscience. Zoltan manages to persuade Ralph and the swindle is staged. One year later after he is no longer in danger of being arrested for fraud, Zoltan will reveal that the discovery was a fraud by using chemical analysis. One of the bones is marked by a chemical symbol known only to himself. Plans do not go smoothly. The bear cubs are on a school trip when they notice something amiss in the desert, a large truck and some digging near Sandcrab Jones’ small house in the desert. They persuade Papa Bear to drive out to the desert to investigate. But the family lock themselves out of the car. A tour bus visiting the dinosaur discovery site rescues them, and affords them the opportunity to look around the discovery site.. Finally, the day for the sale and unveiling of the reconstructed skeleton arrives. Professor Actual Factual will be paying five million dollars for the skeleton. Will the fraud be discovered? If so, how will the culprits be discovered and punished. There are several surprises and unexpected events in store for the reader. This nearly seventy five page chapter book will appeal to children who are dinosaur lovers, detective story enthusiasts, and of course, Berenstain Bear followers.

I read this book and I am 58 and liked it. On every friday I hurry to see what is free on b/n. Yes it is a kids book but so what... Read it and see how wonderful the book is. Instead of grumbling at the free book. Maybe next week you will love the next book. J... :-@

I hate that people complain about the free books for the Nook that are being offered and rate the book based on that. Can't you just not get the book if it's not your taste and only rate the book if you have read it!!!! My daughter has her own nook and she loved this book. Great kids book, glad she has a new book to read this summer. I don't always like the books that are up for free so I just don't get it and I get the books I do like without complaining. I appreciate that Barnes and Nobles caters to ALL tastes not just adults. Grow up people because this world does not revolve around you.
