PreS-K—Forget the scared little girl who burgled the bear family, Lolly is an inventor with pluck, destined to create her own perfect porridge. She has befriended B. Bear, baby of the bear family, and together, with the help of a machine called the Porridge Perfecter, they plan to do just that. Their dreams are dashed when the Gingerbread Man tears through their operation, toppling the machine and running off without even helping to clean up the lumpy mess. "Lolly wasn't sad—she was mad." The Gingerbread Man eludes a number of traps but is finally apprehended with a failed batch of sticky porridge. Readers will be wary of what revenge Lolly wants to exact, but her anger is wisely directed at his behavior instead of at Gingerbread Man. Once he offers to help clean up, all is forgiven and a steaming bowl of porridge is everyone's reward. Chou's illustrations are like an animated rainbow, and his rendering of the duo's scientific process gives life to Livingtston's revisionist version of this classic story. The values of perseverance, forgiveness, and helpfulness are present but not heavy-handed. VERDICT Budding scientists might just be inspired by Lolly's tinkering to create their own master recipes.—Jenna Boles, Greene County Public Library, Beavercreek, OH
“Chou’s brightly colored digital illustrations are a nifty exercise in character spotting, as he hides other fairy-tale characters and settings.” (Kirkus Reviews for B. Bear and Lolly: Off to School)

The very youngest of children will enjoy having this read to them and following the story by looking at the pictures, which perfectly illustrate the "plot".
BFF's Lolly and B. Bear are working together in their laboratory in the woods to create the perfect bowl of porridge when CRASH! the Gingerbread Man runs through and upsets everything!
The chase is on, and the two friends pursue the naughty cookie through an amazing landscape of every fairy story, fable, and legend you can think of! Readers of all ages will have great fun identifying the different stories and characters, like The Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel, and SO many more.
There is also an observant Squirrel who appears on nearly every page and adds his or her dimension.
At last the friends trap the Gingerbread Man with a slippery and sticky porridge trap. He is contrite for his accidental destruction and helps Lolly and B. Bear put everything back together. With his cooperation and input, they are able to create the perfect porridge, showing that working together with those previously considered "bad" can have positive results.
The cover jacket says ages 4 to 8, but I was a teacher for 40 years, including kindergarten, and I know children down to the very youngest will love this book. I really liked it on various levels as an adult!
Obviously, I recommend this book highly, and I will go look for the first book in the series.
