i picked up this book thinking it was a children's book full of facts about bears...what i got what a clever not-so-subtle "fable" all about cold war politics! this is such a very interesting book.
the illustrations are so well done in a painterly/comic book style by paul fennell.
the author's statement,
...as well as, her dedication,
are poignant and really show her passion on the subject.
political books aren't very interesting to me, partly because, politics aren't that interesting to me...but i do find this book a valuable bit of americana.
the bear facts by polly culbertson
first edition, 1948, the john c. winston co., philadelphia
illustrated by paul j. fennell
take a peek at another interesting political book (with a totally different viewpoint) posed as children's book here.
