Description
In this hilarious story of theatrical hijinks, plans go awry when four woodland friends stage a show—unless Bear can step up and save the day!

Bear and his woodland friends are putting on a show, and there are lots of plans to be made. Their curtains need sequins! Their hats must be very, very tall! And their tickets have to be shiny! (No one will come if the tickets are dull.)

Behind the scenes, shy Bear takes notes on every detail until his paws ache. But at least he won't have to go on stage. He could NEVER do that!

. . . Or could he?

In this uproarious tale of theatrical mishaps told with hilariously endearing art, four woodland friends bring down the house—and have plenty of fun along the way.

Praise for The Bear Must Go On:

"A snort-inducing lesson of both bravery and preparation." —Kirkus Reviews

"The rewarding finale . . . applauds facing one's fears, being a good friend, and keeping an eye on the big picture." —Publishers Weekly

"Witty and wonderful . . . A cheerful story, conveying the joy of creation, the fun of friendship, and the beauty of stepping outside one's comfort zone." —Booklist

"Youngsters who find the spotlight too bright might be inspired by Bear's turn on the stage, and show stealers may also reconsider and revalue the contributions of pals who stay behind the scenes." —BCCB

"This playful and endearing story offers young readers a heartfelt message about collaboration and overcoming fear, making it an excellent choice for most collections." —SLJ
