From the Publisher
"The suspense is just scary enough for preschoolers, who will love the
pie-in-the-sky ending in which both the bear and Eddie''s mother get their just desserts." — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
The last time Eddie went for a walk in the woods, he had the biggest
surprise of his life. There was a bear the size of a house in there! Now
Eddie''s mom is in the mood to picnic — and she insists that the only bear in the woods is Eddie''s teddy, Freddie. But when Mom rushes home to get the blueberry pie she forgot, leaving Eddie to wait in the woods all alone — well, can you guess who shows up?
