Little Bear, his mother, and his friends have taken their places beside such other beloved animals of fiction as Winnie-the-Pooh, Peter Rabbit, and Mole. And now Father Bear—large, amiable, and completely fatherly—returns from a fishing trip and joins his family. Beginning readers will love reading about his marvelous homecoming. They will roar with laughter over his method of banishing hiccups, and they will agree wholeheartedly with his views on mermaids.
