Overview

Papa Bear helps the Bear Scouts find someone to rescue—himself!
To get their official rescue merit badges, Brother Bear, Sister Bear, and Cousin Fred need real-life experience saving other bears from harm. And Papa Bear knows the most about search-and-rescue—or at least that’s what he says. But when they get into the wilderness, they find that Papa is much better at getting himself into trouble than getting other bears out of it. Papa charges into bullpens, enrages swarms of bees, and gets himself so stuck in the muck that it takes three Bear Scouts to pull him out. And when he takes a tumble into Great Bear Gorge, the scouts are about to get some real-life rescuing experience. Will the bears be able to help Papa escape?

CHAPTER 1

This was going to be a big day for bear scouts Brother, Sister, and Cousin Fred. To earn their Official Rescue Merit Badges, they had formed a rescue squad. Now all they had to do was find somebody to rescue.

"Finding somebody to rescue is no problem at all," said Papa. "You happen to be looking at the world's greatest rescue expert. I have rescued bears from every imaginable danger—roaring fires, raging rivers, terrible earthquakes. Just follow me and we'll find somebody to rescue pretty quick."

Papa was as good as his word. He found somebody right away. It was Grizzly Gran.

"Look!" shouted Papa. "Grizzly Gran is almost over her head in the pond! To the rescue!"

But when Papa dived into the pond, he found that Gran wasn't over her head at all. There had been a dry spell and the pond had become very shallow. Gran was simply resting on the bottom of the pond, cooling off.

"Don't you worry," said Papa after the bear scouts had pulled him out of the muck and hosed him down. "I'll help you earn your merit badges.

"Look! Right over there in Farmer Ben's meadow—Farmer Ben's daughter! She's being chased by a bull! To the rescue!"

But Papa was wrong again.

Farmer Ben's daughter was merely leading Old Bossy out for milking.

She wasn't in the bull's pen.

Papa was! And the huge, angry bull was coming after him like an express train!

Stan Berenstain (1923–2005) and Jan Berenstain (1923–2012) were a husband-and-wife cartooning team best known for creating the internationally beloved Berenstain Bears. Both born in Philadelphia, they met on the first day of art school, and were married after World War II. Inspired by their children’s love for Dr. Seuss, the Berenstains created a cartoon version of their own family, and with The Big Honey Hunt (1962) began a series that would stretch to more than two hundred volumes. Starring Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Sister Bear, and Brother Bear, the books quickly became popular for their evocative drawings and simple explanations of wholesome themes. The stories sold more than 200 million copies worldwide and have been adapted as movies, television shows, and amusement park attractions. The Berenstains’ younger son, Mike, has overseen the series since his parents passed away, ensuring that it will continue to be popular with each new generation of young readers.
