Review: Maybe a Bear Ate It! by Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley

Synopsis: What happens when you can't find you FAVORITE book? When the book you LOVE is missing? Climb into the imagination of a young child in this hilarious picture book romp! (From the back of the book)

Review: This is a cute, clever picture book. The main character (who I think is a cat?) can't find her favorite book! So, she imagines all sorts of terrible things - a dinosaur stomping it or a bear eating it. When she finds it again, her rejoicing is hilarious. This is a perfect book to read young kids (5 and below). A few pages with no words give a perfect opportunity for young imaginations to narrate. The illustrations are well-done, simple and yet, sophisticated. I got a few chuckles from this book and will hold it ready should I have kids. Highly recommend!
