Illustrated in full colour. The Bears' adventures take them in, out, around, and about. A good job of combining words and pictures into a slapstick but cohesive story. Ages 3+

The pictures tell the story here, captioned by a series of prepositional phrases that follow seven little bears "out of bed, . . . out the window, . . . through the woods, . . . up Spook Hill" (where they are chased away by a menacing owl), then "down Spook Hill, through the woods" and so on until they are "back in bed" (while Mother Bear, glimpsed through the window, sits sewing obliviously downstairs). Another Berenstain bauble for the earliest beginner, more involving than many of its ilk. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - Stan Berenstain
Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humour books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 260 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' interest in children's books has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.
