Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The front cover announces this as “a celebratory pop-up edition” of an earlier book of the same title, author and illustrator. It is certainly large! The book opens with a double page spread of the original art in black and white accompanied by the familiar words: “We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We’re not scared. Oh, oh! Grass! Long, wavy grass. We can’t go over it. We can’t go under it. Oh, no! We’ve got to go through it!” The next spread, in full color with a large, four layer pop-up shows a father, his four children and a dog moving through very tall grass. On each side of the main pop-up there are tabs that, when pulled, move the characters through the grass. In this way, alternating between black-and-white pages from the original version and new, action-filled color pages, the characters in the book make their way through tall grass, a river, thick mud, a dark forest, and a snowstorm, coming finally to a cave where they find a huge brown bear! Then, it is back through the snow, the forest, the mud, the river, the grass, into their house, up to their bed, under the covers, and they are never going on a bear hunt again! The illustrations are charming and the pop-ups are delightful. This is a worthy enhancement of an already favorite children’s book Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
