    One thought on “Bruce's Big Move”

    1. Oh dear. I love this series and want more, and I especially want a direct sequel to this particular one. I don't care how saintly you are, if something continues to aggravate you there's a point at which you'll snap, and the results will not be pretty. If Bruce doesn't manage to get some peace & quiet, he's either going to need to get therapy or a mentor or something, or he's going to go bonkers.But the art! Don't forget to peek under the dust jacket for two surprise bonus images. And allow [...]

    2. Poor Bruce. All he wants is peace and quiet and good food. Unfortunately, he is the adopted mother to four geese, and now some mice have moved in. That means not a moment of peace and quiet for Bruce. He already knows he can’t get rid of the geese, and he can’t seem to ditch the mice, so the only thing he can do is move. Bruce packs up the geese and hits the road, hoping to escape the mice, but he soon finds chaos follows him no matter where he goes. What will curmudgeonly Bruce do?I adore t [...]

    3. I'm sure fans of the series will love it, but I just really don't care for the mice. Bruce trying to be fake happy for the sake of the geese makes for some magical illustrations though. That alone is kind of worth it.

    4. Bruce the bear continues to be mother to his four goose children. But now three mice have also joined them in Bruce’s den and it’s getting very crowded, particularly for the grumpy bear. It was messy and loud. Bruce tried to get rid of the mice, but nothing worked. So he decided to move away with the geese instead, leaving the mice behind. Bruce built a house, just the right size along the water. Bruce was very happy there, but the geese were all sad. Soon though, the mice had a solution, on [...]

    5. With hilarious expressions and adorable illustrations, this book is sure to entertain parents and children alike. This is the third book in the Bruce series and continues where the second book left off. I love the expressive images of the bear, especially as he anticipates the calm of a quiet home, and then angst when the moving crew and the housewarming party bring a riot of activity and old and new friends. The illustrations, "created using scans of treated clayboard for textures, graphite, in [...]

    6. I do love Mother Bruce quite a lot I'm an introvert doing an extrovert's job and by the time I get home I just don't want to talk to a single other person. I'm grumpy and sullen and just want some peace and quiet. Poor Bruce! You and me both buddy Every time I see that grumpy face it's like looking in the mirror, but Bruce doesn't even have Starbucks and his recipes become lifelong responsibilities. Yikes! Anyways, this book is a continuation of the wonderful series that started with the book Mo [...]

    7. It's getting awfully crowded in Bruce's house with the geese and the mice. It is now time to move. I love this series. I laugh out loud and the goings on at Bruce's. This is a wonderful series for your little ones (and us not-so-little ones.)

    8. Oh, my goodness. These illustrations! The book manages to look modern and classic at the same time. You can tell how much love was put into this book.Concludes with an applesauce recipe!

    9. It takes more than a house to make a home in this worthy successor to the other stories in the Bruce series. I loved it!

    10. Omg, take off the dust jacket and appreciate the front and back view of Bruce on the motorcycle. It NEVER fails that when I show Bruce's derriere to any class that they break into adorable, hysterical giggles.

    11. There is nothing better than reading a book for the first time. When you see the dust jacket unfolded, the different book case, the opening and closing endpapers which are not the same and are a part of the visual story, certain interior illustrations and specific sentences in the text, it is a distinctive experience. There are books which strike a chord in your reader's heart so clearly the place you read them, who is with you as you read them together and the emotional impact you feel during a [...]

    12. I love Bruce and the goslings, but I'm not a huge fan of the mice. Ah, well.This book was pretty cute, in its own way. Bruce's face when he's trying to cheer up the geese is priceless.

    13. I have a special place in my heart for Mother Bruce, by Ryan T. Higgins. This summer one of my chickens was determined to become a mother. We couldn't coax her to leave her eggs for weeks--and our lack of a rooster and any possibility of those eggs actually hatching didn't concern her. So one day, we bought 2 one day old chicks, and snuck them underneath her at night. In the morning, she awoke to the babies she had been waiting for! She has happily adopted them and protected them, and mothered t [...]

But you remember what happened in the first book, right? That little transformation Bruce goes through? I'm just sayin' Well actually, I'm not saying anything. You'll just have to see what happens for yourself.But I will say this, the third book in thi [...]
