Mother Bruce

(3) PS Bear Bruce, a curmudgeonly loner, intends to cook the goose eggs he has gathered, but when they hatch ("MAMA!") he must forgo cooking for parenting. Almost every page offers a laugh, and the illustrations play hilariously to the narrative's understatement (e.g., "Bruce was stuck with them" describes an illustration of Bruce pinned to the ground by four goslings).
