The creator of the New York Times bestselling The Bear Ate Your Sandwich brings us another sly story of a hungry bear and a smooth-talking narrator. A tough gumshoe of a cat--the name's Muffin--protects his territory: The Little Bear Bakery. But there are no bears here. Not on Muffin's watch. One night, Muffin hears a suspicious noise. Mouse? Raccoon? Bat? Nope, not the usual suspects. But Muffin hears . . . growling. Could it be? Yup. A bear. Just a cub. Whose stomach is definitely growling. Muffin's got this case solved--clearly this bear needs some donuts. In this wonderfully noir-tinged tale, Julia Sarcone-Roach gives us another funny story of a hungry bear in the wrong place at the right time. This tale is sly and sweet, with sprinkles on top.
Julia Sarcone-Roach lives in Brooklyn, New York, writing and illustrating picture books. She is the author and illustrator of THE SECRET PLAN, SUBWAY STORY, and THE BEAR ATE YOUR SANDWICH, which was an Ezra Jack Keats Honor Award winner, a New York Times bestseller, and an excuse to eat many sandwiches. She is also the illustrator of INCREDIBLE INVENTIONS by Lee Bennett Hopkins and the Ezra Jack Keats Honor Award book EXCELLENT ED by Stacy McAnulty.
Julia runs across a surprising number of wild animals in Brooklyn, but, to date, no bears. She does, however, share her home with an inquisitive cat, and both of them enjoy donuts very much.
