Barney's owner takes the brown bear to Harold Hinkel's birthday party. The trouble begins when Harold's little sister thinks Barney is her present. Then she decorates him with the paints that Harold got for his birthday. And then she drops him in the aquarium.... Everyone enjoys the birthday party(except perhaps Harold Hinkel's mother), and Barney arrives home much cleaner than when he left. Barney, the star of My Brown Bear Barney and My Brown Bear Barney in Trouble, is as unflappable-and as lovable-as ever.

Elizabeth Fuller is the author of eight nonfiction books and the playwright of Me andJezebel, which played Off Broadway and is performed in theaters around the country. Remarried, she lives with her son and husband in Weston, Connecticut.From School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 1-Barney the bear has a rough time of it when a young narrator and her friend Fred attend Harold Hinkel's birthday party. Coveted by Harold's younger sister, Barney gets painted on and then thrown into a fish tank. His owner doesn't fare much better when the "pirate ship" hammock capsizes and she lands in the vegetable garden. Fuller's pen, ink, and watercolor cartoons show all of the mishaps. This book lacks the strong repetition and focus of My Brown Bear Barney (1989) and My Brown Bear Barney in Trouble (1993; o.p., both Greenwillow), and the story seems to wander a bit as a result. Barney is no longer the central character, which is perhaps the point, as his owner is growing up. However, the wordier text and somewhat meandering plot can't match the childlike charm of the earlier titles.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, Eldersburg, MD
