About the Author:

Sue Ann Alderson lives in Vancouver, BC. She taught creative writing at the University of British Columbia and has written many books for young people.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3Sent to the mountain to pick blueberries, Belinda and Samantha delight in scaring one another with thoughts of bears. Each sound and shape becomes an imagined bear until further examination reveals a squirrel, a raccoon, or a deer. The fanciful text consists of the dialogue between the two girls, and their voices are indicated by different fonts. Unfortunately, the fonts arent distinct enough and it is often difficult to determine which character is speaking and what is happening. Johnsons capricious illustrations work better than the text. They have wonderfully imagined bears and blueberries that rain joyously from the sky. As the girls leave the mountain, the trees appear in the shape of a bears head, with dark spots designating its eyes, nose, and mouth. Readers who are comfortable with a dreamlike reality may enjoy this frolic, but the more literal minded will be awash in the imagery. Those looking for blueberries and bears will find Robert McCloskeys Blueberries for Sal (Viking, 1948) a less colorful but more accessible story.Jody McCoy, The Bush School, Seattle, WA
