Every year the little town of Yellowtooth celebrates the New Year with a Blueberry Muffin Festival. But every year, the festivities come under a shadow cast by Irving and Muktuk, two polar bears whose badness is equaled only by their thick-headedness.
These bears are muffin-pilferers of the worst kind. Therefore, they have to contend with Officer Bunny, who is the law in Yellowtooth. Officer Bunny is wise in the ways of the North, and knows how to protect a muffin. As the years go by, Irving and Muktuk’s muffin-getting schemes turn more and more devious, keeping Officer Bunny on his toes as he tries to figure out what to do with the crafty though dimwitted bears once and for all.

Daniel Pinkwater lives with his wife, the illustrator and novelist Jill Pinkwater, and several dogs and cats in a very old farmhouse in New York’s Hudson River Valley.From Booklist:
Ages 4-8. A new Pinkwater book is cause for celebration. This one, centering on two polar bears "inclined toward stealing and subterfuge," has the right Pinkwater touch: zany action and witty wordplay from Daniel matched by Jill's funny marker-and-ink illustrations. Every year, the tiny town of Yellowtooth holds a New Year's Blueberry Muffin Festival. The bears plot to make off with the muffins, but Officer Bunny outsmarts them. Next year, Officer Bunny foils the bears again, and so it goes, till the bears' final caper when they dress as large, hairy blueberry muffins. This time the Internet is called on to find the furry felons a home--at a zoo in Bayonne, New Jersey. It's a happy ending for all: the tricksters are tricksters in gleeful fashion. Connie Fletcher
