Laugh Out Loud!

Mother Bruce

I was so tickled when I read “Mother Goose Bruce”  (Hyperion, Nov. 24, 2015) — a wonderfully amusing and clever picture book.  The grumpy bear does not like “sunny days” or “cute little animals.”  Bruce the bear “only liked one thing — eggs!”  One day as he prepares one of his gourmet egg recipes found on the internet, baby goslings hatch from the eggs.  To his dismay and disgust the babies insist that the grumpy bear is their mother.  He tries every which way to “return” them or lose them. The goslings prevail as Bruce becomes more irate.  As the months go by the grumpy bear tries every trick to get rid of them.  Prepare for a hilarious conclusion.  This is the funniest picture book of the season.
