The Bear’s Sea Escape

Benjamin Chaud. Chronicle, $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4521-2743-9
Chaud reprises the formula of his acclaimed The Bear’s Song with Papa Bear searching high and low for Little Bear, who’s gone astray. After the bears try to hibernate at a busy shopping emporium, Little Bear and a new human friend make their way to a train and a ship, with Papa in pursuit. Readers can search along with him, trying to spot the bears amid the delightful bustle of city streets, crowded beaches, and a multipage conga line. It’s like a wonderfully Gallic cousin to Where’s Waldo?, and don’t think that Chaud doesn’t know it—there’s a familiar-looking fellow in a striped hat and glasses tucked away in a crowded traffic scene. Ages 3–5. (Aug.)
