"This is the bear who went to the dump and fell on the pile with a bit of a bump." When Fred the bear accidentally gets whisked away by the trash collector, his faithful owner and dog are close behind. Will they be able to save him? Hayes's energetic rhyming verse cries out to be read aloud, and no child will be able to resist Craig's humorous depiction of the bond between boy, bear, and dog.

PreSchool-Grade 2 A delightful misadventure. Its strong rhyming narrative and bold type make it fun for sharing or reading alone. A stuffed bear is accidentally pushed into a bin and winds up at the dump. A determined small boy and his dog follow him and retrieve him. They hitch a ride home, clean up the bear, and promise not to tell the other animals and toys what has happened. In a few short pages, Hayes captures the full range of emotions that any small child might feel if lost. Bear's face is wonderfully expressive. His indignation is palpable in the illustration of the line, "This is the bear all cold and cross." The watercolors are outlined in pen and ink; each page is enclosed in a softly colored border. Small balloons add extra comments to the large-sized rhyming text. A simple story line rounded out with humor and well-matched pictures. Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library

"This is the bear who fell in the bin. This is the dog who pushed him in. . . . This is the boy who took the bus and went to the dump to make a fuss. . . . " Borrowing liberally from the style of "This Is the House That Jack Built," Hayes has fashioned a charmingly suspenseful tale about a teddy bear who is taken to the dump by accident and the little boy who, along with his dog, goes to the dump to save the bear. With sprightly watercolor and black ink illustrations, Craig has endowed all the characters (including the spunky teddy bear and contrite dog) with distinct personalities. At $2.50 this book's a bargain.
