Enhance your purchase
Bruce the bear likes to keep to himself. That, and eat eggs. But when his hard-boiled goose eggs turn out to be real, live goslings, he starts to lose his appetite. And even worse, the goslings are convinced he's their mother. Bruce tries to get the geese to go south, but he can't seem to rid himself of his new companions. What's a bear to do?

"The vision and cleverness of Higgins and his delightful illustrations have produced an outrageously funny picture book that will make even the grumpiest readers laugh." -- Indie Kids' Next List (Top 10 Selection)
* "Laugh-out-loud funny story...In Ryan T. Higgins's extraordinary illustrations, the dark purple bear with his perpetually furrowed brow contrasts delightfully with the cute yellow goslings who crawl and tumble all over him...Mother Bruce never cracks a smile as he dutifully raises his new family, but young readers won't be able to hold back." -- Shelf Awareness, starred review
"Higgins turns classic picture-book scenarios upside down, then wrings them for contemporary laughs." -- The New York Times
"Readers will no doubt start giggling as they see Bruce push his shopping cart through the forest...hilarity ensues...Comic illustrations range from full-page paintings to spot illustrations and panels that combine to show Bruce's schemes to rid himself of the geese, culminating in a silly but sweet conclusion. This case of mistaken identity will lend itself to a fun-filled storytime." --Booklist

Ogni mattina "dobbiamo" giocare che io sono Bruce e lui una delle paperette...
My older brothers name is Bruce and my niece his granddaughter is named Hazel. We used to call him Mother Bruce when we were young adults.
Looking forward to hear how she likes the books.
