Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Little Liam is snuggled in his toasty bed when his slumber is broken by a crack! snap! ROAWR! outside in the woods. Papa is away, and Mama is sleeping soundly. And as everyone knows, Mama is delicious to forest things. It’s up to Liam to protect her, but what can he possibly do against the forest’s wild and dangerous creatures? He’s just a little boy, after all.

Barbara Joosse, author of Please Is a Good Word to Say, teams up with Jan Jutte, one of the Netherlands’ preeminent picture-book artists, to create this highly original picture book that shows that what it really takes to defeat ferocious bears is—a big imagination!

Listen to Barbara Joosse read ROAWR! here.

Review:

"It's bedtime, Papa's away, and noises threaten from the forest that opens, Wild Things — style, from the walls of Liam's bedroom. 'What could Liam do? He was just a boy (thump thump), too small to fight off forest things.' Nonetheless, Liam resolves to defend Mama, who is 'snore asleep.' Alert readers will notice that the enormous bear — the source of the recurrent 'roawr!' — looks suspiciously like Liam's teddy bear, right down to the pirate eye-patch. Many 'imagining' stories end when the child's play is revealed as make-believe and the child is jolted back to reality. Joosse (In the Night Garden) lets Liam vanquish the bear and return to bed in his own good time. Dutch artist Jutte's ink, watercolor and acrylic spreads, which recall the work of Crockett Johnson, energize this swashbuckling adventure, from the leafy jungle wallpaper made real to the lumbering, snaggle-toothed bear. Joosse's consistently inventive prose ('One dark and snarly night') builds suspense (as does the repeating 'thump thump' of Liam's heartbeat) and is a worthy counterpart for Jutte's artistry — the two share a solid understanding of small boys. Ages 3 — 5." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
