Editorial Reviews

Review

In My Bear Griz, the first book written and illustrated by Suzanne McGinness, a young boy wearing a paper crown declares, “My name is Billy and I love bears” in immense text that mirrors the size of Griz, a grizzly, of course, and the bear he loves best. He goes on to describe the ins and outs of their friendship –- they like to eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches, snuggle up for naps and stargaze in tandem. The sequence feels like a warmhearted coda to Jez Alborough’s “Eddy and the Bear” series.

There is no story here to speak of, but it’s a sweet portrait of an imaginary friendship. The book’s strength is the illustration, which combines a scratchy, colorful Paul Galdone-like bear along with mixed media images: the boy with a collaged hat, intervals of childish penciled handwriting, watercolor washes and pen-and-ink drawings." - The New York Times

"My name is Billy and I love bears. My bear's name is Griz because he is a Grizzly Bear."

Billy and Griz do lots of things together, like playing hide-and-go-seek and looking at the stars and telling jokes.

This is a book with illustrations big enough for an enormous grizzly bear and his enormous adventures. Lovely ending, with the little boy dropping his stuffed grizzly bear as he heads toward home.
