Bears and Boos

By Shirley Parenteau
Illustrated by David Walker

The adorable bears are excited to dress up for Halloween — but are there enough costumes for everyone?

Big Brown Bear and the four little bears can’t wait to dress up for Halloween. Everyone grabs their costumes from the costume box, but — oops! — in the rush, Floppy is knocked on her furry behind, and now there are no costumes left for her! Fuzzy says she’s sorry and offers Floppy a golden gown. Then each of the other bears shares an item with Floppy, and soon she’s dressed like a queen — just in time for the parade! Shirley Parenteau and David Walker combine cheerful read-aloud rhyme and irresistibly charming art in another story for the youngest cubs and their big bears.

  • The first-ever Halloween-themed title in the irresistibly adorable Bears on Chairs series
  • Focuses on the dressing up aspect of Halloween, so it isn't a bit scary or spooky – perfect for preschoolers
  • Not only a story about Halloween, also relays a gentle lesson about sharing
