Polar bears like pudding very much. If you meet a polar bear, and do not want it to eat you...and if you have pudding...you will be all right. If you do not have pudding, I am sorry to tell you that you will be eaten...unless you have muffins. Most polar bears will accept muffins instead of children, or pudding, as something to eat. And this is why I put polar bears in many of my books--it is to share important information. Some day you may meet a polar bear, and of course you will have pudding or muffins to share with it, and you will not be eaten. Then you will say, """"I am certainly glad I read that book!""""
