There Are No Bears in This Bakery by Julia Sarcone-Roach
From Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers:
The creator of the New York Times bestselling The Bear Ate Your Sandwichbrings us another sly story of a hungry bear and a smooth-talking narrator.
A tough gumshoe of a cat–the name’s Muffin–protects his territory: The Little Bear Bakery. But there are no bears here. Not on Muffin’s watch.
One night, Muffin hears a suspicious noise. Mouse? Raccoon? Bat? Nope, not the usual suspects. But Muffin hears . . . growling. Could it be? Yup. A bear. Just a cub. Whose stomach is definitely growling. Muffin’s got this case solved–clearly this bear needs some donuts.
In this wonderfully noir-tinged tale, Julia Sarcone-Roach gives us another funny story of a hungry bear in the wrong place at the right time. This tale is sly and sweet, with sprinkles on top.
“This delightful caper calls out for multiple readings.”—New York Times
