Review: Popcorn

When Mama and Papa bear head out to a Halloween party, they leave Sam all alone. Quick to jump on the phone, Sam invites his friends over for their own party, with the expected kid-organised-party-drama results.

But wait--it's not all as sordid as it may seem. Sam's friends bring popcorn to the party. Not just one friend--but all his friends. The kids set the popcorn on the hob, in an enormous pot and very soon there's so much popcorn, it fills the house to bursting.

How can Sam and his friends get rid of this foodie disaster before mum and dad get home?

A sweet story with wonderful graphic illustrations, this is a relatively high text reader-style book that makes a great transition for kids moving from picture books to junior fiction.

Just one in Frank Asch's Bear Book series.
