Book Review


Fred has a lot of impressive talents, but the best talent of all is that his grrrrr is the loudest of all. This means that he spends a lot of time on his own getting ready to compete, but he doesn't need friends when he's surrounded by all of his trophies and awards. When a new bear comes to try to win Fred's usual trophy and Fred wakes up one morning with no grrrrr, Fred is worried that this could be the end of his reputation as the bear with the best grrrrr. Soon new friends help Fred to find his roar and to find out what happened to Fred's most prized attribute. Fred and others learn that having good friendships is more important than winning prizes.
