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:
Two wild and crazy polar bears, Irving and Muktuk, are back in their fourth adventure. They're cheating at cards when their friend Larry arrives for a visit carrying a fish-decorated cake. They play volleyball, chat, and agree that visits are nice. The next evening, the bears escape from the zoo so that they, too, can pay a visit. They pick out a nice house but lack a present. No problem--they pull up a bush from out front and present it to the Beachball family. After an inside volleyball game wreaks havoc, daughter Sylvia calls the police, who cart Irving and Muktuk back to the zoo, where they conclude that it's nice to have a visit and it's nice to make a visit. The Pinkwaters' droll humor continues to mark the adventures of these lovable, silly bears. Felt-tip-and-ink illustrations outline the white bears with squiggly lines against colorful backgrounds. Bad but funny. Julie Cummins
