roawrPappa is away and Liam is snuggled in bed when he hears “the forest CRACK and SNAP!…DANGER!” He knows a hungry bear is out there and he must protect his mother and himself. He journeys into the forest to “do what boy so clever, brave and true” does and returns triumphant and ready for bed. The cadenced text, with every word carefully chosen, makes this perfect for reading aloud. The illustrations are reminiscent of Ungerer and Sendak, yet entirely original and fresh. A great addition to books that help children deal with fears. This one actually might help and more important, children will enjoy the journey! Picture Book. Judith Rovenger (WLS)
