There are No Bears in This Bakery

by Julia Sarcone Roach

This picture book is perfectly sweet! There’s a fun detective-y feel to it, which makes Muffin, a cat, the detective! Muffin lives at the bakery. Muffin is the ruler of the night. Muffin knows all, it’s Muffin’s beat. But, there’s a new sound. A ‘Grrr’ sound. “Up close the bear smelled like old socks, cinnamon, and adventure.” Just perfectly worded! It’s like that through the whole book! There is suspense, and surprise, and a sweet, cuddly, sugary, cozy bear hug. But wait, didn’t the title say There are No Bears in This Bakery?
