Overview

Bear has made a wonderful den for himself, but is something missing? A warm, playful story about what truly makes a home. Den good. Den great. Den just right. Bear is sitting on the floor of his empty new den when he suddenly notices it's not quite done. It needs . . . chairs! And a table! But stretched out on his table after a carpentry job well done, Bear realizes his den is still not quite right. . . . Cozy furniture, nice lamps, delicious food, an enticing game -- is there anything Bear's den still needs as he stands alone and surveys his handiwork? Vibrantly colored illustrations make kids feel right at home in this fun-to-read ode to friendship.

Joyner renders Bear in a broad cartoon style that may bring to mind Yogi Bear with a stronger moral character. Indeed, Bear is a great role model, proving--without preaching--that industriousness, grit, and ingenuity offer manifold rewards.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) Joyner's ink drawings with digital color are appealing in their humorous depictions of the industrious, jovial protagonist bear...--Kirkus Reviews Joyner's ink drawings with digital color are appealing in their humorous depictions of the industrious, jovial protagonist bear...--Kirkus Reviews
