- First Book In A Very Funny Series -
Mother Bruce by Ryan T. Higgins is about Bruce, a bear that likes to keep to himself. He doesn't like sunny days, rainy days and above all cute little animals. You wouldn't be wrong to think he could be nominated for grump of the forest. But there is one thing Bruce does like: eggs. However, one fateful day the unexpected happens after his search for eggs, salmon, and honey. The eggs hatch! And Bruce becomes the victim of mistaken identity.
Not until lately have I found such great author/illustrators. What adult and child wouldn't laugh when there is an illustration of Bruce taking the hatched geese back to Mrs. Goose in a shopping basket no less. He wants to check out her return policy!
I'm so glad I didn't let my misconceived notions regarding the title keep me from reading this book. I would easily rate it 5 stars. And I plan to read more books by Ryan T. Higgins.
