Synopsis: Fifty years ago children were first delighted by the story of Mr. Bear, the Neighborhood Nuisance who roams the forest squashing the houses of other animals - and finally gets his own hilarious, smashing comeuppance.

Here is Mr. Bear's story, back again in a facsimile Anniversary Edition, with the same wonderful pictures by Angela. Included is new foreword by one of Mr. Bear's longtime admirers, the Far Side's Gary Larson, who adds it's "... the greatest little story in the world."

About the Author: Morrell Gipson grew up in South Carolina and now resides in New York City. She is the author of a dozen books for young children including the highly sought after Mr. Bear Squash-You-All-Flat, and The Surprise Doll which remained in print for 30 years. Ms. Gipson has had a wide-ranging literary career; in addition to being an author she has edited hundreds of children's books for Doubleday, Scribner's, Crowell, Lippincott and Metheun. She has worked with such luminaries as Margaret Wise Brown, Leonard Weisgard, the d'Aulaires and Marguerite de Angeli.

Her education includes a Bachelor's Degree with honors in American History and Journalism from South Carolina College for Women.
