Svetlana Petrovic was born in France, where she still lives with her husband and two children. Brown Bear, White Bear is her first published book for children.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3—When Alice receives a brown teddy bear from one grandmother and a white bear from the other, the women quarrel about which toy the girl will love most. Alice adores both stuffed animals but they, following the example of the grandmothers, begin arguing with each other, too. They fight all day and night and at times they resort to pushing and kicking. Alice eventually separates them, putting White Bear in her closet and Brown Bear on a high shelf. White Bear is afraid of the dark so Brown Bear, even though he is afraid of heights, glides to the floor on a kite and opens the closet door, only to have it close behind him so that both are locked inside. The bears comfort one another and in the morning Alice finds them nestled in a box. Petrovic's somewhat didactic and uncomplicated text demonstrates the effect that fighting and resolution have on mediators. Hardy's somber blue, gray, and brown hues help set a serious tone.—Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI END
