More About The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach
 
 
 
Overview

Bear meets sandwich, adventure ensues. . . . A sly classic-in-the-making for fans of Jon Klassen, Peter Brown, and Mo Willems.

By now I think you know what happened to your sandwich.
But you may not know how it happened.
So let me tell you.
It all started with the bear . . .
So begins Julia Sarcone-Roach s delicious tale of a bear, lost in the city, who happens upon an unattended sandwich in the park. The bear s journey from forest to city and back home again is full of happy accidents, funny encounters, and sensory delights. The story is so engrossing, it s not until the very end that we begin to suspect this is a TALL tale.
The wonderfully told story, spectacular illustrations, and surprise ending make this Julia Sarcone-Roach s best book to date. You ll want to share it with your friends (and keep a close eye on your lunch).
Praise for The Bear Ate Your Sandwich:
"This story is mischief-making at its finest. And just like a good sandwich, it's hard to resist." -Book Page
"Charming" The Wall Street Journal
"While the bear storyline is entertaining in itself, the ending twist will equally delight kids who love to spot untruths, and a second reading for hints as to the narrator s credibility may well be in order." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred review"

“By now I think you know what happened to your sandwich,” begins the unseen narrator of Sarcone-Roach’s (Subway Story) sly tale. “But you may not know how it happened.... It all started with the bear.” The narrator spins a long, involved story about how a bear found its way to the city (and the sandwich), while warm, painterly acrylics show what’s really going on. The bear finds himself a stowaway on a berry truck that passes “high cliffs” (readers see tall buildings) and arrives in “a new forest” (a lively city street). He makes the city his own, shinnying up fire escapes and riffling ruinously through the papers outside a newsstand, then arrives in the park: “There it was. Your beautiful and delicious sandwich. All alone.” The bear gobbles it down and returns to bear country by boat. Or so the storyteller says—he’s revealed to be the young sandwich owner’s dog, and he might not be entirely trustworthy. The fabricated story and accompanying artwork stand nicely on their own, while the narrative frame delivers an extra comic kick in the pants. Ages 3–7.
