Once upon a time there was a story. It was a lovely story with absolutely NO BEARS in it-not a SINGLE BEAR anywhere.

Then one day...MORE BEARS!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This story within a story is basically about an author who's writing a story. A mysterious voice implores him to add more bears, and though he's resistant at first, he relents when he realizes that's what his audience wants. Soon, though, there are so many bears that it starts to cause issues, and the author ends up having to take drastic measures.

The story was cute and unexpected. I also enjoyed the illustrations and seeing all the goofy bears with their strange names.

Overall, this is a lighthearted and fun book. Those looking for books about writers and/or bears will probably like it.

Writing: 4/5
