Title: I Thought This Was A Bear Book

Author: Tara Lazar

Illustrator: Benji Davies

Publisher: Alladin

Ages: 4-8

After an unfortunate bookshelf mix-up, Alien suddenly finds himself tumbling out of his pages with a zork, zook, and zinder and into a very strange world, complete with a talking bear family. And Alien must return to his book before his beloved Planet Zero is destroyed!

Why you should read it:

Ms. Lazar's highly anticipated follow up to her incredible debut picture book, THE MONSTORE, is finally here! Everyone has read the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears story. Ms. Lazar's razor sharp wit comes through as she give this golden classic a space age update by dropping a friendly Alien from the neighboring Planet Zero into the three bears storyline. The fun begins when the bears decide to help Prince Zilch find his way back to the pages of his own book in time to save the galaxy.
Illustrator Benji Davies' artwork provides a whimsical background for some friendly bear high jinx, while Ms. Lazar's engaging story line will encourage young readers to eagerly join in helping Prince Zilch get back to his home planet. A nice addition to any home library!
