School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1--A touching story about a boy and his much-loved bear. Mom and Gram think Snowtop needs cleaning so Gram takes Simon out for a day of fun, leaving the stuffed animal at home. All along the way the boy asks, "Where gone, Snowtop?" with no response from his grandmother. When the two return home, his mother tells Simon that Snowtop is upstairs in his room. However, sitting on the bed is Strange Bear, not Snowtop. This new creature is white and smells like soap, and the child cries himself to sleep, longing for his missing animal. When he awakens during the night, he takes the brave-looking Strange Bear with him as he searches for his lost toy. As they look in the sandbox, under furniture, and snack on jam and bread together, Strange Bear transforms back into Snowtop. While somewhat predictable, the story has a progression that children can follow and the repetitive, "Where gone, Snowtop?" adds feeling. Colorful, cartoon illustrations of emotion-filled faces illustrate the text.--JoAnn Jonas, New York Public Library
