The boy, the bear and the dog are the best of friends. But one day the bear gets lost and has to be searched for high and low.

Ugh! So a dog pushes the bear into the garbage on purpose. Then the boy who owns the bear goes to the dump (BY HIMSELF!) to retrieve his bear taking the dog with him. And it ends with the boy finding his bear and the dog getting a bone?!

This book is filled with secrets, sneaky behavior and kids just going wherever they please with no consequences! To me, this just encourages children to behave in inappropriate habits. Not a "bad dog" nor does the dog apologize to the bear for what happened. Oh no- he gets a bone out of the deal. Maybe h should toss toys in the garbage more often! And the boy traipsing through a dumpyard....No WAY! Not safe at all! ( )
