Smor Jan 8, 2008
What a delightful book. Loved how the story evolved about a destructive bear and how the other animals managed to get the better of him. The pictures are bright and cheery, and the story made me laugh. Was a gift to my grandson. The title is crazy but it brought a laugh to my grandson and he made me read it right away -- several times.
Mr. Bear Squash-You-All Flat Dec 27, 2007
This is an exquisitely told tale, and a favorite of mine from childhood. The author's subtle humor and the wonderful illustrations by Angela have made "Mr. Bear" a true classic. I was disappointed, however, to find that some of the original text had been altered in the reissued edition....in the interest of Political Correctness, I suppose. It really does change the perception of the character. He was, after all, such a "stupid" bear.
I cried when I got my copy Dec 4, 2007
Like everyone else who has reviewed this book, it was one of my favorites as a child, and I have been hunting antique bookstores and flea markets ever since to find my own copy. Pre-internet I thought it was a lost cause. Then with the internet, I found rare copies, but people were asking as much as a $1,000!!! Tonight my sister, somehow, found a new copy on this site and had it sent to me for Hannukah. I burst into tears. I reread it...it isn't all that great, I guess, but for whatever reason, the pictures and text jumped out at me and brought me back to my cherished childhood. Thank you to Gary Larson, this site and my sister!!!
My all time favorite Nov 11, 2007
I have an original 1950 edition that was my mother's. This is my favorite kids book. The mean bear gets what's coming to him in the end. Not like the sissified children's books of today where they would have talked out their differences, sang kum ba yah, and all become friends. Real world doesn't work that way, so why should a kids' book? Great book. Glad to see it reprinted!!!

My wife did not believe that Mr. Bear Squash You All Flat really existed so I had to buy the book to prove it to her and both she and I really enjoyed reading it all over again. this site price was much less than the publisher web site. As a kid, I read that book at least 100 times.
