BOO! It’s finally Halloween. Baby Bear is trick-or-treating with Mama and Papa Bear. The door is open at the very scary house. Maybe they should go inside. But is that a TEE-Hee-Hee coming from being a bush? Could it be that the three bears in for a Halloween trick?


School Library Journal:

“…delightfully presented story, rich with folk art warmth and whimsical humor. A perfect Halloween read-aloud.”


“Good fun for story hours, this works as an introduction to fractured fairy tales.”


“The bears get a trick from Goldilocks in this Halloween treat…A good addition to fairy-tale and Halloween collections.”

Children’s Literature:

“…a new version of a favorite tale… sure to be enjoyed by children as it is read aloud or read on their own…Quite humorous.”
