I found Emory the bear and Charlie the boy he made friends with totally engaging. The story is told from the young boy's point of view. The reader is treated to all the angst of a growing boy who has not only lost his mother but is left with a father who is deep in depression brought on by the death of his wife. In spite of how it sounds, the is a lot of humor and happiness in the story and that's what makes Cameron such a good writer.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story and great writing. Emory is not your average bear. I hope that is enough to pique your interest. I liked the book enough to rate it as a 5 star read.
