about

A darling companion to Old Bear and His Cub from the New York Times bestselling creator of the Gossie books

What's an Old Bear to do when he finds a Little Cub all alone and afraid of the dark? Adopt him, of course! And help him try to get over his fears. In this book we see the father and son from Old Bear and His Cub meet for the first time--and grow to love one another.

With the same bold art and humorous twist on parenting, Olivier Dunrea's tumbling bears will melt your heart and show how strong the bond is between any father and son pair.

Praise for LITTLE CUB

Praise for LITTLE CUB*"Readers will treasure the bears’ gingerly give-and-take—watching them serendipitously become a family of two is a joy to behold."--Publisher's Weekly, starred review*"Dunrea packs a huge amount of emotion into his limited text and engaging art. A delight for fans of these characters and a lovely next step for children ready to move beyond the “Gossie and Friends” series."--School Library Journal, starred review"The universal need for love and companionship is conveyed sweetly and poignantly. Comforting and uplifting."--Kirkus Reviews"Children will easily relate to the little cub’s need to be cared for, even if they’ve never experienced being parentless... The pencil and gouache illustrations are rich with autumnal color, and each scene is kept in artful balance by lots of clean, white space both within the illustrated page and on the facing page of text... Besides being shared along with its companion title, this might also be paired with Moore’s A House in the Woods or even Rylant’s Mr. Putter and Tabby series, or simply read as a reassuring bedtime book."--BCCB
