The bear ate your sandwich

Paperback Dragonfly Books, 2018


From the Publisher
Bear meets sandwich, adventure ensues. . . . A sly classic-in-the-making for fans of Jon Klassen, Peter Brown, and Mo Willems.   By now I think you know what happened to your sandwich. But you may not know how it happened. So let me tell you. It all started with the bear . . .   So begins Julia Sarcone-Roach&;s delicious tale of a bear, lost in the city, who happens upon an unattended sandwich in the park. The bear&;s journey from forest to city and back home again is full of happy accidents, funny encounters, and sensory delights. The story is so engrossing, it&;s not until the very end that we begin to suspect this is a TALL tale.   The wonderfully told story, spectacular illustrations, and surprise ending make this Julia Sarcone-Roach&;s best book to date. You&;ll want to share it with your friends (and keep a close eye on your lunch). Praise for The Bear Ate Your Sandwich: ***Winner of an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor Award!*** "This story is mischief-making at its finest. And just like a good sandwich, it's hard to resist." - Book Page "Charming" &; The Wall Street Journal "While the bear storyline is entertaining in itself, the ending twist will equally delight kids who love to spot untruths, and a second reading for hints as to the narrator&;s credibility may well be in order." &; The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred review
