About the Book



"A typically wonderful Oxenbury family sets out with gusto on a bear hunt, and the old story comes to life. . . Paintings are simply marvelous. . . . Rosen's retelling is spare, with a driving rhythm, and some new sounds add sparkle to the traditional tale . . . Just plain fun from beginning to end . . ".--The Horn Book, starred review. School Library Journal Best Book of the Year; Boston Globe/Horn Book Award Honor Book; Horn Book Fanfare List.
