Fun story. More to absorb for adults in the details. Reminds me of some of the better Dav Pilkey picture books. Look for additional info on inside front and back covers.

An amusing parody of Animal Planet and live news channels, as the bears, rudely awakened from hibernation, spend a day in the city, sending the citizens in a panic. Well illustrated, with sub-plots and a few references to famous bears thrown into the mix. Suitable for children above the age of 6 and adults will have fun with the story as well.
