A missing cub, a carnival, and a gang of cat burglars… Hold on to your hats!
I’m interrupting this post to give you an update that the bear cub has been found. I repeat, the bear cub has been found!
From cat burglars to a bear cub gone missing, Bearing News: Bears to the Rescue, is a follow-up sequel by best selling author David Biedrzycki’s book Breaking News: Bear Alert. The hilarious bear family is back and the story is covered by a bumbling reporter and the never-shocked crew at Channel 3 News. Nothing is off limits as news coverage continually interrupts itself to tell ‘breaking’ stories of bears on the hunt for their cub and the whole family arrives at the town carnival to solve their mystery. In the interim, the bears ride the Ferris wheel, rock the roller coaster, and inadvertently foils another dastardly plot by the persistent cat burglars from Bear Alert. It’s a mash-up of stories reminiscent of our crazy news culture and no story is too small to be BREAKING! The story ends as the bear family discover their cub as the news reporter cries on camera about the beauty of the family reuniting. It’s our current news situation at its ‘best’, emotional, over-the-top, and a hilarious tale where bears are the ones uncovering their cub and foiling cases in the process. If only those bears were real perhaps our crime rate would be at the lowest levels in history while our local news stations will be there to milk each story for all its worth. Hilarious!
