Debi Gliori is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including the Baby Witch and Me series, No Matter What, and the Pure Dead series.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-Mr. Bear is the kind of father who hides behind his newspaper while his wife takes care of the baby-until he involuntarily spends an evening babysitting for their neighbors, the active Grizzly family: Fred, Ted, Fuzz, and the Baby. These four would be a challenge for anyone, let alone a novice. They soon recognize Mr. Bear for the beginner he is: "'I don't think you're a real babysitter,'" the older children say over and over as he shows his incompetence. But, after a bit of practice, he finally gets it right-especially when he yells at naughty Fred, Ted, and Fuzz- and then he goes home to take a more active role in his own parenting. The humor, repetition, and interest in the Grizzlys' mischief will appeal to youngsters. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations are cozy, funny, and full of ursine details. However, the book won't be as much of a crowd-pleaser as Gliori's My Little Brother (Candlewick, 1992): the adult-oriented message is a bit heavy-handed, and the story line creaks a bit before it really gets going. On the whole, an appealing book, but not an essential addition.
