My 7 yr old gave these books a 5. I agree. "His books are awesome' she says.I liked the way morals were told in an entertaining way. I bet my daughter didn't feel she was being moralized at because she wanted to hear the whole book. I've tried others that had a distinct 'moral' or 'value' and she hates it.(Books that go ... is thankful or ... learns to be honest. blah.

Burgess books are interesting entertaining and a good read. Hopefully the little lessons learned by the animals were also learne
There's a series of stories each focusing on a different animal in the forest. This one is (mostly) about a bear and who's afraid of who.
Read the series to get the perspective for different animals. Fun to read aloud for up to 8 years old I think.
Buster was quite a charming character! I loved that all the other characters were afraid of him, and how that really added to the dynamics. And once again, John Lieder does a wonderful job with the different voices - he really got down the gruffness of a brown bear :)

It was too shameful for buster the bear to steal. I enjoyed the book thoroughly.

Well I didn't consider this one of the best of a long series of these animals wearing cloths but still live in the forest...type.

The first story in here reminds me of the old animal trickster tales. As fot the other two parts lets just say, bear and boy meet, and leave it at that.
