Description - Big Black Bear by Wong Herbert Yee

When Big Black Bear shows up at the Brown Brick House on Sycamore Street, he's not very nice or polite. He barges in, makes a mess, and even threatens to eat Little Girl. Will she be able to teach him some manners? "The surprising twist and lively rhyming couplets enhance Yee's lesson about politeness and generosity, and opaque fields of color and whimsically clumsy figures embolden his illustrations." -- Publishers Weekly

Buy Big Black Bear by Wong Herbert Yee from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.

Book Reviews - Big Black Bear by Wong Herbert Yee

US Kirkus Review » Out of the woods he comes, to knock on a door and beg, "Give me some FOOD and a Big Soft Chair!" The little girl lets him in, only to discover that he's "a BIG BAD BEAR with no MANNERS at all!" Muddy footprints, an upended piano, and a shower of the jellybeans he's greedily munching are just the beginning: "I'm a BIG BLACK BEAR, and I do as I please!" Fortunately, a much bigger bear turns up to set things straight and exact an apology ("PLEASE excuse me. I'm a Little Black Bear/who just turned three"), and all ends with a friendly snack. Big little three-year-olds may not recognize themselves here as quickly as their parents do, but they'll love the funny, rhythmic verse and bold, collage-style illustrations - plus the deft visual transition from big and brash to appealingly small and meek. (Kirkus Reviews)
