From School Library Journal:

The theme of the child who wakes up in the morning as a character from the previous night's bedtime story has been done before, but the combination of Oliver's matter-of-fact telling and expressive illustrations give it new personality, interest, and humor. George, a school-age boy who becomes the polar bear of his storybook, finds that his new shape interferes with his family life and fun. The family's sincere (although bewildered) acceptance of him in his new incarnation, and George's own good nature are comforting, and readers who imagine themselves in the polar bear's place will bask in the unconditional love he finds. The text is deliberately simple, allowing the watercolor and ink illustrations to take over; these derive much charm from the facial expressions and the wonderful form of the polar bear: thick and soft, husky and cuddly. With funny, appealing images, enhanced by British expressions, this is the kind of captivating picture book that children listen to with rapt attention and wide eyes. --Liza Bliss, Worcester Public Library, MA
