Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Hans de Beers's books about the Arctic cub inspire a quartet of novelty Little Polar Bear Stories, adapted by Susan Hill Long, illus. by DiCicco Studios. In I Found You! Lars the polar bear cub visits the jungle and plays hide-and-seek with his friend Henry, a hippo. A liftable flap extends each spread and reveals an additional friend. In the second, Where Is Mother?, the hero follows various sets of footprints (their owners are revealed with a lift of the flap) in search of his mother. The last pair of titles provides two pages of stickers with which readers can illustrate the story. Lars and friends try to teach snow goose Pieps how to fly in You Can Do It! and discover an old shipwreck in The Secret Hideout.
Children's Literature
Once again Lars and his friends show how teamwork can bring a happy ending to any story. Three polar bear bullies keep harassing Lars and his buddies, chasing them away from wherever they are having fun. But when Lars and Robbie, a seal, sneak through a secret tunnel of ice, they find an abandoned, wrecked ship —the perfect place for them to play. Of course, the bullies cannot leave them alone for long, and so they come to break up the fun. Lars and Robbie use their wits to stake out the territory for themselves, though, and win the ship for their friends. Soft, colorful backgrounds fill the pages, with lines as gentle as the characters they create. This is part of the "A little polar bear story" series, based on books by Hans de Beer. It includes two pages of adorable stickers depicting the characters from this and other stories about Lars. 2003, Night Sky Books, Ages 6 to 9.
