Description
The Brothers San Souci take on the Brothers Grimm in this retelling of a classic folk tale, for readers 5 to 8. When Mother and Father Bear go off to look after Grandmother Bear, they leave twins Jonas and Juniper to take care of the house and field chores, warning them to beware of thieves. The youngsters, with good hearts but little sense, nearly ruin the farm with their efforts—including inviting thieves to clean out their hidden gold—but, working together, they somehow put things right. The illustrations, in watercolor and colored pencil, are splendidly detailed and full of character.

"Lively, comical illustrations enhance the abundant droll humor in this noodle-head tale that plays off the Grimm Brothers' 'Clever Elsie.'... The waggish humor provides a good opportunity for a dramatic read-aloud."—School Library Journal
