Beach Bummer

Disney-Hyperion. (Little Bruce). May 2024. 32p. Tr $9.99. ISBN 9781368090247.
PreS-Gr 2–It’s a hot summer day in Soggy Hollow. While the geese and mice want relief at the beach, Bruce just wants to sit at home. Eventually worn down by their imploring looks, Bruce relents, and they head to the beach with Bruce lugging all the equipment. Bruce’s curmudgeonly ways don’t spoil the outing for the others, but rain drives them all back home. A laugh-out-loud ending will surprise readers as Bruce has a turn of heart and creates a wonderful beach substitute for his companions. Delightful illustrations capture emotion with great humor.
VERDICT Fans of the “Mother Bruce” series will not be disappointed, and newcomers will want to read more of the adventures of this grouchy bear and his friends.
