Mother Bruce by Ryan T. Higgins

Reviewed by Amanda K (Library Staff)

In this hilarious picture book, Bruce is a very grumpy bear who doesn’t like anything. He does not like sunny days, rain and especially NOT cute little animals. The only thing Bruce does like is eggs. Unlike other bears, he doesn’t eat them raw, but cooks them into fancy recipes that he finds on the internet. One day he gathers some eggs for his next recipe and “is met with an unwelcome surprise”. His delicious eggs become four adorable goslings and Bruce becomes their mom. The ending is surprising, but fits perfectly.

Children and adults will love this picture book. It’s witty dialogue and amazing illustrations will have everyone laughing out loud.
