About this title


A household of bears awakes early from hibernation to go on an amazing voyage of discovery across ocean, desert, and mountain.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 Abiner Smoothie, his other bear friends and "Puppy," a rabbit, go on a quest for the heart of a bear. They proceed from adventure to adventure, successfully rescuing damsels and performing good deeds. Their journey ends in a prehistoric land with dinosaurs, where they find the very first bear in a cave drawing. This original story ends up with the bears back at their great house with Abiner exclaiming about his astonishing dream. The illustrations, featuring blue and brown tones (including the text in blue and brown), are whimsical, softly colored, full of bears in historical costume, but so crowded and detailed in many cases that they are almost overwhelming. The overly long text has vocabulary and concepts that are often difficult, including such words as potentate and sojourners. Puppy is reading Spinoza, a figure that will mean nothing to the audience for this book. The word plays included (e.g., Folies Beargere) have adult humor and sophistication. By the end of the book, the adventures just seem tedious and hardly "bearable."Rita S. Padden, Wenatchee Public Library, Wash.
