Staff Reviews

Grumpy Bear Bruce likes being on his own... and eggs. He really likes eggs. But when a hasty deal leads to his hard boiled eggs turning into goslings, Bruce suddenly isn't hungry. Worse still, he can't seem to shake those pesky goslings.

— From Glynnis recommends


Bruce the bear likes to keep to himself. That, and eat eggs. But when his hard-boiled goose eggs turn out to be real, live goslings, he starts to lose his appetite. And even worse, the goslings are convinced he's their mother. Bruce tries to get the geese to go south, but he can't seem to rid himself of his new companions. What's a bear to do?
