"Bob not only is a fantastic animator with such projects as "The Incredibles" and "Cats Don't Dance" under his belt, (and so many others) his recent work on his "Molly and the Bear" comic strip speaks volumes about his skills and writing ability! I challenge you to look at his strip and not walk away laughing!" -BOING! The Podcast
"Bob is an amazing cartoonist, and "Molly and the Bear" is a great throwback to strips of yore, with gentle humor, great characters, and above all, beautiful art. If you didn't know Bob was an animator, you would after reading a few of his strips." -Tall Tale Radio
"Molly and the Bear by Bob Scott tells the heartwarming story of a girl and her bear. Besides the fact that her bear, named Bear, is a real, life-sized bear, he reminds me of my childhood teddy bear in every way. He's a cuddly best friend who follows her everywhere. As a kid, I would've loved nothing more than to have my beloved teddy bear come to life, and I think that's why I enjoy Molly and the Bear so much. When reading it, I can escape adulthood and go back to being a kid for a little bit, going on adventures with my bear." -GoComics
From the Back Cover
"Molly and the Bear is a beautifully illustrated comic strip with a ton-and-a-half of heart. Bob Scott is a guy who loves his craft--his cartoon references will certainly keep comics buffs on their toes! Bob's also a huge talent--he contributed to some of the best projects we ever did at the Garfield studio. So, please sit back, relax and enjoy Molly and the Bear!" --Jim Davis, creator of Garfield
"I'm sure that if Bob's comics had been around in the days I scoured the funny papers for cartoons to copy, my sketch pads would have been filled with Mollys and Bears" --Kevin Lima, director of Enchanted, 102 Dalmatians and co-director of Tarzan
"Bob Scott has reached back in time and captured what still makes today's readers smile and chuckle with Molly and the Bear. It's the kind of comic strip for which I couldn't wait for my dad to finish reading the paper!" --Brenda Chapman, co-director of Brave and The Prince of Egypt
"Only haters of kids, furry animals and gentle humor would refuse to buy this book." --Jim Reardon, co-writer of WALL-E and director of The Simpsons (T.V. series)
"Disney story artist Bob Scott has been drawing a delightful comic strip, Molly and the Bear, for the past few years. It's worth a read any ol' time..." --CartoonBrew.com
"Comic strips rarely have the life that Molly and the Bear does, but coming from a seasoned professional who has worked on the very best that Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks has to offer, we'd expect nothing less. Truly, the characters in this strip look like they've jumped right off of a story-board sequence for their next animated short."--DigitalStrips.com
"Bob Scott brings his unique style to this online comic creating a fun lovable family and a story that just leaves you smiling as you read each new strip." --WebComicAlliance.com

Fun comic for all ages. Go check it out!
I have followed his drawing since he was a teenager and a very much devoted to his family.Keep up the great work Bob. A great book for all ages.
Molly and the Bear is populated with fun, well defined characters who are comically consistent, incredibly expressive, warmly charming and fun.
Between the plucky Molly to her grumpy Dad Dean
I love Bear who is a sweetheart of a cowardly bear that I'm sure will steal your heart. I really love the way he's drawn. He's so cuddly and a hoot to look at!
I really appreciate the chronology of the characters. The book is well thought out. The reader actually gets to see the origin of their relationships. I like that approach rather than being dropped into the midst of a story and trying to catch up.
Great to look at and a wonderful time, get your copy of Molly and the Bear today!
Why I picked it up: I am a huge fan of quirky animal stories, strong female protagonists, and family comics.
Why I finished it: It takes a special sort of person to handle a 900-pound pan phobic grizzly, and Molly happens to have the right personality. Despite the fact that some of Bear's trivial idiosyncrasies leave Molly scratching her head, she is (to a point) happy to oblige to his requests. It's not that she's being dismissive; she merely wants to find a way to relieve some of Bear's anxieties: his fear of cats, his worry that the air isn't safe to breathe when they land after a plane flight, the stress of whether or not Molly is going to leave the house when she puts her socks on (sometimes she just has cold feet), and how to get her father to warm up to him. Originally published as a webcomic, Bob Scott has collected the most comprehensive collection of his strips to give the reader a little bit of a taste as to what Molly and the Bear is about. As previously stated, it's easy to get drawn in to the comic not only because of the characters, but because Scott's art pays such a loving homage to the Golden Age comics of which we are so fond. There is a playfulness to the art and the writing that shows the reader just how much fun Scott has writing and drawing the strips. I thought it was particularly clever that he's thrown in a few artist gags into the mix - they might go over some reader's heads because they seem somewhat out of context, but I think it's a way for Scott to poke a little bit of fun at himself. It's a funny, heartwarming comic about just being yourself and the joys of friendship. For more of Molly and Bear, check out the comic at [...]
