wanted to get a dog, and already had everything a dog would need to be happy. A
bear came and told her she was a dog, and asked to come live with her. She and
Bear went home together. After a while, his bear behaviors started to wear on
Lucy, and Bear starts to get tired of pretending to be a dog. Bear leaves. They
each miss each other, and then are reunited.
the story was cute, especially in the beginning. However, I felt it could use
more detail in the illustrations, and the story line felt like it slowed a lot
after she took Bear home only a quarter of the way into the book. This is a
book I would not normally buy for my kids with my own money, but instead borrow
it from a library if my children found it interesting.
