Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Don't ever take a bear's teddy bear, no matter how cute you think it is. If you do, you'll be in for trouble. Big trouble. For a bear whose teddy has been stolen isn't simply heartbroken, but determined to get it back. So determined that he might just gobble up more than honey to do so! However, should he succeed in getting his teddy back, then there just might be a surprise in store. This is a book that all readers will relish, and one they will want to read again and again.

Born in 1971, Gaëtan Dorémus received his degree from the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, France, in 1999, after which he picked up a few other degrees while creating picture books and illustrations for the press. Dorémus has illustrated over twenty books and has produced hundreds of freestanding illustrations and cartoons. He loves to bicycle ride, walk in the mountains, and eat green tomatoes with cinnamon. In 2006, he became a Papa.

Review:

"The Stories Without Words series concludes with this piquant entry by French illustrator Dorémus, whose nervously cross-hatched line drawings are beautifully suited to his exploration of primal emotions. A blue bear lies asleep under a tree, clutching a treasured teddy bear. A long-snouted wolf sneaks up, snatches the teddy bear, and runs off with it, laughing maniacally. The wolf taunts the bear when it catches up with him and tosses the teddy bear farther still. The bear — entirely understandably — eats the wolf. In a wonderful moment, the bear, its stomach now full of wolf (visible in cross-section) stands on a hilltop, thinking hard; revenge is sweet, but the teddy bear is still missing. Additional outlandish encounters with fierce animals end with an even more crowded stomach, but still no teddy bear — until the bear finally finds an ally. There are no tiresome morals about sharing one's belongings or waiting patiently until they are found; Dorémus goes straight to the frustration and rage of childhood, laying them out in 32 pages like a brisk session on an analyst's couch. Ages 4 — 7. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
