Sam decides to throw a party of his own, and he dresses up in a costume and invites all of his bear friends over. Each friend has individually come up with the idea to bring a package of popcorn, and after having some fun at the party, someone gets the idea to pop all of the popcorn together in a big black kettle.
The popcorn soon fills the house, and the young bears spend the rest of the night eating popcorn in order to fix the problem. After Sam cleans up, his parents return home with a gift for him-popcorn.
I liked this story a lot when I was a boy; it's fun to see the different costumes of the young bears and the different varieties of popcorn they bring (a bear dressed like a ghost has "spooky tooth" popcorn). The idea of a house being completely filled with popcorn is exciting (later recreated in the movie Real Genius), and the cartoonish illustrations provide a strong visual.
I'm not sure that this book is particularly instructive or informative, but it is very fun, and I think most children would come back to it time and again.
My 21 year old son still has his well-loved copy in his bookshelf.
I hope it comes into print again because it is a charming and engaging read-aloud story.
Mr. Asch has a real talent for finding topics that children find fascinating. In this case, there were two topics: Halloween and popcorn.
Essentially, the other reviewers are right. This is a good, if not great, book for children that they will read (or have you read) over and over.
**See also, [...] for the author reading some of his stories. My kids just loved it!
I bought it because I loved this book as a child and the large version was way overpriced, but this mini book was not worth $4...maybe $2. It would make a nice stocking stuffer or Easter basket goodie but it's not really sturdy enough for children to use, and the type is too small for a early reader to comfortably read.
I was so excited about finding this book that I overlooked the size. I absolutely love this story, just not this copy! My kids sat on the floor around me and I read this to them, and they could barely see the pictures because of the "mini"ness of this book.
