Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sophie does not want to do her homework, a research report on polar bears. Bor-ing. Theyandrsquo;re big. They eat things. Theyandrsquo;re mean. What else is there to say about them anyway? As it turns out, plenty. And when a polar bear named Olafur swoops her away to the Arctic, she soon learns all about the playful bearandrsquo;s habits and habitatandmdash;from glacier mice to the northern lightsandmdash;and, despite her first reservations, she finds herself not just interested but excited about the Arctic. When the two are swept out to sea on an iceberg, Sophieandrsquo;s new knowledge and knack for creative thinking pay off in a big way: she calls a whale to their aid! Inspired by her journey, sheandrsquo;s ready to return home and take another swing at her assignment, this time with gusto.

The Bear Report showcases the power of curiosity and imagination to fill any blank canvas, whether itandrsquo;s an incomplete homework assignment or the Arctic ice.

Review:

"Elliot's father wears a dorky plaid suit and works as some sort of naturalist. He's also pretty absentminded, so when Elliot — a quiet, rosy-cheeked boy who prefers tuxedos — brings home a Magellanic penguin, he doesn't notice. Small's (Elsie's Bird) ink-and-watercolor drawings are as urbane as Elliot's bow tie, and he creates a magnificent mansion for Elliot and his father. Elliot fixes up a bedroom ice rink with the air conditioner and hose, puts Magellan to bed in the freezer, and takes him swimming in the bathtub. Buzzeo (the Adventure Annie books) gives Elliot courtly manners ('Thank you for inviting me' is his response to his father's suggestion they visit the aquarium) and a quick wit. The book's humor is built on gentle misunderstandings between father and son (when Elliot asks for a penguin, his father assumes he means a stuffed one from the aquarium gift shop). Though very much a boy-and-his-pet story, it's just as much about two gentlemen who appear to be orbiting entirely different planets. The revelation that they're not so dissimilar after all is about as sweet as it gets. Ages 5 — 8. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The sheriff and his deputy dog have been charged with a mission: to bring a dozen donuts home safely. All seems to be going well until the young sheriff peeks inside the box to check on the tasty treats. They’re practically calling his name, and in the blink of an eye (and with just a few nibbles), a donut disappears! Wherever could that missing donut be? Luckily, this is one mystery the sheriff and his deputy are sure to bring to a close.
