Have you ever met a bear who is so very big he can’t fit into a cave to sleep? His name is Grizzwold. He is very smart. At night he gets stuck coming into his cave, so he has to sleep outside. Grizzwold is looking for a new forest. One day he heard a loud sound. All the other bears ran away. But not Grizzwold! He went to see what was going on. The people were chopping down trees. Grizzwold said, “Why are you chopping down trees?” “I can’t live in a forest with no trees!” Will Grizzwold find a forest, or stay where he is? Read the book to find out.
My favorite part is when Grizzwold went to the circus because Grizzwold kept falling on the floor. While the circus bears were having fun on bicycles, skates, and standing on their heads, Grizzwold tried to stand on his head. But the circus people could not keep him from falling. Grizzwold can’t skate because he is too big and heavy and he’s never skated before. I can’t skate either. He must feel embarrassed! Grizzwold is very funny and mixed-up. Grizzwold thought a light pole is a tree and climbed up. I was laughing when he got so mixed up!
I recommend this book to people who like mixed up bears. If you are a mixed-up person, you should read this book. It will make you laugh!
