Summary

Summary

Charles Fuge, the acclaimed artist of I Know a Rhino , Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball , and It's a Monster Party , is back with another winner that's sure to become a favorite with kids--and their parents. Not only does it have the cutest illustrations ever, but the story is one dear to children's hearts: the importance of a loving, protective father. A cuddly little bear has a tale to tell about his dad, "the roughest, toughest, biggest, strongest dad in the whole jungle." The real fun is in the illustrations of cute cubs marching behind and listening-- and running off one by one in fear as they hear that Daddy has teeth sharper than an alligator, more claws than an eagle, and can roar as loud as a lion. But when the little bear finds himself alone and gets scared, it's Papa who comes to save the day. The final illustration --with Daddy carrying his smiling cub, will warm any heart.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-A little bear wants to impress his friends, so he brags about his dad's strength, sharp teeth, and many claws. With each boast he scares away one playmate and moves deeper into the jungle. At last he finds himself all alone with jungle noises and the approaching shadow of a big, scary beast. The beast turns out to be big, cuddly Daddy coming to find his little cub. The pictures are the strong suit of this book. Fuge's bright, stylized illustrations in yellows, greens, browns, and lots of white are expressive and appealing. While children will enjoy the anticlimactic thrill of this simple story, Jez Alborough does a better job and offers more suspense and humor in Watch Out! Big Bro's Coming (Candlewick, 1998). Nevertheless, this warm, fuzzy father-son book is a fine addition to larger collections.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
