Bad bears go visiting : an Irving & Muktuk story

Publication info:

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2007


Irving and Muktuk are cheating each other at cards when their polar bear friend Larry drops by for a visit. The bears eat cake topped with little fishes that Larry has brought, play a spirited game of volleyball, and afterward chat pleasantly until Larry goes home. "Visits," Irving and Muktuk decide, "are nice."

The next evening, when all is quiet at the zoo, the Bad Bears sneak out to pay a refined visit of their own. When they arrive at the home of the Beachball family, things--as usual for the baffled bruins--get out of hand.
