Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"This is the bear who fell in the bin. This is the dog who pushed him in. . . . This is the boy who took the bus and went to the dump to make a fuss. . . . " Borrowing liberally from the style of "This Is the House That Jack Built," Hayes has fashioned a charmingly suspenseful tale about a teddy bear who is taken to the dump by accident and the little boy who, along with his dog, goes to the dump to save the bear. With sprightly watercolor and black ink illustrations, Craig has endowed all the characters (including the spunky teddy bear and contrite dog) with distinct personalities. At $2.50 this book's a bargain.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 A delightful misadventure. Its strong rhyming narrative and bold type make it fun for sharing or reading alone. A stuffed bear is accidentally pushed into a bin and winds up at the dump. A determined small boy and his dog follow him and retrieve him. They hitch a ride home, clean up the bear, and promise not to tell the other animals and toys what has happened. In a few short pages, Hayes captures the full range of emotions that any small child might feel if lost. Bear's face is wonderfully expressive. His indignation is palpable in the illustration of the line, "This is the bear all cold and cross." The watercolors are outlined in pen and ink; each page is enclosed in a softly colored border. Small balloons add extra comments to the large-sized rhyming text. A simple story line rounded out with humor and well-matched pictures. Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library

I teach preschoolers and they ask for this book over and over again. The catchy rhyming rythmn seems to be pleasing to them. The pictures are adorable and the story takes them along on the adventure with "The Bear".

Great little book with a subtle humour and interesting little characters, that appeals to both adults and kids. A great book to read aloud and you can focus the story different ways in different readings - on the naughty dog that throws the bear away and then claims hero status on finding him, on the adrenalin junkie bear who views the whole escapade as an adventurous day out or on the little boy determined to find his beloved bear. The illustrations are simple but lovely. This is sure to be a favourite - be prepared to read this over and over and over again!

Ugh! So a dog pushes the bear into the garbage on purpose. Then the boy who owns the bear goes to the dump (BY HIMSELF!) to retrieve his bear taking the dog with him. And it ends with the boy finding his bear and the dog getting a bone?!

This book is filled with secrets, sneaky behavior and kids just going wherever they please with no consequences! To me, this just encourages children to behave in inappropriate habits. Not a "bad dog" nor does the dog apologize to the bear for what happened. Oh no- he gets a bone out of the deal. Maybe h should toss toys in the garbage more often! And the boy traipsing through a dumpyard....No WAY! Not safe at all!
