Reviews
  • "The lilting text hovers between poetry and prose, avoiding metrically structured lines but drawing on gentle internal and end rhymes and repetition to provide shape and rhythm. The present tense second person (second bear?) narration is swift and conversational . . ." -Starred Review, BCCB
  • "Sayre and Jenkins follow Vulture View (2007) with a similarly excellent study of brown bears that's in equal parts poetic and enlightening." -Starred Review, Publisher's Weekly
  • "Inquisitive, informed and lyrical; an intriguing extension to hibernation classics." -Starred Review, Kirkus
