K-Gr 2--Paulie, a New Jersey bear, wants to join the circus, but he has no talent. Rejected, he hides in a pile of tomatoes on a dock. When he awakens, he is in Russia where he befriends another circus-loving bear. The point of this book seems to be to foster friendship between cultures (after the story, readers meet a real American boy and Russian girl), but the telling in this overlong story is so uninspired that few children will care. Vannozzi's bright pictures have a crude `50s Saturday-morning-cartoon look and lack appeal. Apparently a sequel is planned, but it's hard to see why judging from this dreary effort.
