The Horn Book
"A mother has some questions after her child informs her there's a bear on the eleventh floor of their apartment building. . . . Their witty banter - which constitutes the entire text - makes for a lively read-aloud or readers-theater script. . . . Mother and child's affectionate relationship comes through in both text and pictures."
