Gr 1-3--These funny British imports, with three stories apiece, dispel some stereotypes associated with older citizens. Grandpa Bear leads a physically active, busy life and craves adventure. Young Finley is always surprised at what happens when he's been fishing, cooking, or playing hide-and-seek with his grandfather. The vibrant watercolor illustrations add to the understated humor of the text. Young readers will relate to these often laugh-out-loud stories. In "Peace and Quiet for Grandpa," Finley's mom blames him for all of the mature bear's misdoings; in "Worms," the contents of a bag the cub is taking to Grandpa are accidentally released. Libraries with heavily used beginning-to-read collections will want to stock up on these appealing titles.
