Hold Tight! Hold Tight!

John Prater. Barron's Educational Series, $5.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-7641-2304-7

In Hold Tight! by John Prater, Baby Bear-in his sixth starring role-wonders, why do the laundry when there's fun to be had? The young hero imagines a box first as an airplane, then a train. ""Want to come?"" he asks Grandbear. ""Hold tight!"" says Grandbear, adroitly hoisting the box with aviator Baby Bear at the helm, and readers can easily discern from Grandbear's crinkly-eyed bemusement that he doesn't really mind being distracted from his chores.
