Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bruce is a Bully Who Learns a Lesson (Sort of) Bruce the bear is a nasty type of guy. He likes to roar and rumble through the forest and his favourite pastime is to scare the wits out of the other forest animals. He especially enjoys throwing boulders at them. But one day he goes too far and throws a huge boulder down a hill where it lands in the garden of witch. She is generally a nice old lady, unless she gets her temper up. She decides to teach Bruce a lesson he won't forget. Another fun story but not so good as the others we have read by Peet. This book points out that some us are just too set in our ways to ever wholly change.
