Praise
"[Reynolds's] use of color is excellent, and slanting lines guide the eye along, whether the children are leading the bear up a hill in the daylight or down a road at dusk. The fiery orange-red of the setting-sun sky in the last spread makes the skipping children and bear seem up close and looking as if they're flying right into readers' laps."
From the Publisher
Annotation Flying like a seagull sounds just fabulous to Bear, and he very much wants to fly, too. Sadly, this isn't really possible, but the kids show him a close second that will be just as fun: amusement park rides! Which ride can take Bear the highest? With lovely illustrations, this is a companion book to BEAR'S DAY OUT.
Editors Note Wishing he could fly like the seagulls at the beach, Bear is thrilled when his four thoughtful friends come up with the perfect plan to make his dream come true: a trip to the amusement park to play on an assortment of rides and high-flying machines!
