PreS-Gr 2 In this, the third zany adventure of the Forgetful family ( The Forgetful Bears Houghton, 1982 and The Forgetfuls Give a Wedding Scholastic, 1984), the bungling bears are going on a trip to Hawaii. They forget their bags, they forget their tickets, they even forget where they are going. After returning home from the airport to search for the forgotten tickets, an old elephant, Mr. Memory, pays a business call and tries to teach them some tricks (elephant tricks) for remembering things. They are, of course, quite hopeless, even in their elephant disguises. Mr. Memory does accidentally discover the missing tickets and sees them offon ``a trip they never forgot.'' A light, silly story made more fun by Bruce Degen's vibrant watercolor illustrations. His round, cuddly bears are endearing, if quite similar to those that appear in Grandpa Bear (Morrow, 1985). The humorous details (the bears' license plate is a string of question marks) and nonsensical antics of the absent-minded five make this, if not an unforgettable choice, at least a good solid one.
