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:
K-Gr. 2. Irving and Muktuk, the bad polar bears of two previous books, find themselves cowed by a bunny in this brisk tale. Roy, a good bear, lives in an apartment near the zoo. He invites Irving and Muktuk to a party after they agree to behave, although as they note, "We're not to be trusted." Roy is willing to take a chance, but having warned him, Irving and Muktuk feel they have carte blanche to do their worst. Also at the party is a bunny that readers have met a few pages earlier when he was doing his best to terrorize the bad bears. They spend the party trying to avoid the rabbit, and, for once, the duo is under control. A foreshortened, one-joke story doesn't always a book make, but this has the advantage of Daniel Pinkwater's droll, understated text and Jill Pinkwater's giggleworthy artwork in felt-tip marker and ink. The focus is always on those two white bears, and sometimes there's not much going on in the pictures, but a pop of excitement comes from the bears' own relationship. Ilene Cooper
