Wilson’s “bear” books are simple, following a rhyme and a pattern that beg readers to join in, and John McDonough’s narration certainly promotes that. Hearing his bass voice and gruff demeanor, the listener can almost see a big, often cuddly but currently unhappy bear. He’s hungry, and he wants more! As his friends lead him to different sources of food, bear eats and eats and eats, until, finally, bear is full. Only now his friends are hungry. McDonough narrates at just the right pace--steady and consistent--allowing the reader to follow the words. Although the illustrations add to the overall effect, McDonough brings the story to life even without them. W.L.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
