But the Bear Came Back

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Dan Taylor. A bear with a suitcase repeatedly shows up at a boy's house until the youngster sternly sends him away because "bears do not belong in houses." Sure enough, the solitary boy soon misses his would-be friend and launches a neighborhood search for him. Appealing vignettes move the entertaining story along, and the illustrations show the bear introducing some agreeable disorder into the boy's orderly home.
