The Bear Ate Your Sandwich

There aren’t many picture books with unreliable narrators. The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by 51vt7S7BnRL.jpgJulia Sarcone-Roach is one that works extremely well and that even young children will understand and enjoy. Not only is the narrator unreliable, but she us unseen until the last few pages. Until that point, the story is an unexpected adventure of how the bear made his way out of his den, through the city and to the park bench to get the little girl’s sandwich. Delightful.
