Synopsis: A wacky tale that proves you can't put a price on love. Although the Million-Dollar Bear is the most valuable teddy bear in the world, he's also the loneliest, locked up in a waterproof, burglar-proof, bulletproof vault. When he gets his freedom, he winds up in the arms of a family that adores him--even though they think he's not worth a red cent! Full color.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 2?A writer for adults and a political cartoonist have concocted a situation in which two cranky millionaires, both avid collectors of teddy bears, scheme to possess the one and only original bear. The Million-Dollar Bear feels sadly isolated living in a burglar-proof, temperature-controlled vault, and rejoices when he is accidentally carted away by the Squeegee Cleaning Company. Bouncing out the rear of the truck onto a trash heap, he is rescued by a little boy, taken home to a loving family, and pronounced, much to his relief, to be not worth a red cent but a perfect companion for a toddler. Meanwhile, after a futile and agonizing search, the millionaires comfort one another by wallowing on the floor together with a huge collection of regular teddy bears, who are delighted to be the center of attention for once. The long, witty text, simply and expressively written, reads aloud well, and the message that being loved is far more precious than having riches is clear and satisfying. The ludicrous story is vigorously and appropriately illustrated with splashy, bright, full-and double-page spreads in which the human figures are satirically caricatured, with exaggerated features. The pictures are filled with clever details, active lines, and dozens of wistful, fuzzy bears.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
