Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bears belong in the woods--they can find everything they need to survive there.  But what happens when people start knocking down trees and building houses where the woods used to be?  This young black bear is about to find out.  He wakes one spring to find his territory completely changed. When the curious bear dares to come closer and closer to the houses, he discovers backyards and trashcans are an easy place to find food. But it's dangerous for people and bears to live so close together.  What will happen when the bear is discovered right in someone's backyard?

Synopsis:

Bears belong in the woods--they can find everything they need to survive there. What happens when people start knocking down trees and building houses where the woods used to be? This young black bear is about to find out. Full color.

About the Author

Anne Rockwell has been aware of the conflict between human and wildlife habitat since a family of whitetail deer settled right outside her studio window.  Flying squirrels have also found their way inside, and an inquisitive woodchuck sometimes peers into Anne's windows to see what she's up to.  So far there are no bears, but who knows?  And she doesn't even live in a forest, but in suburban Greenwich, Connecticut.  Anne is the beloved author of countless books for young readers.  Visit her Web site at www.annerockwell.com.

Backyard Bear is her fortieth book and her eighth collaboration with Anne Rockwell. She is also an editorial illustrator, creating art for ad agencies, magazines, and book jackets.
