★ "Like a faithful teddy, sure to become a favorite for many readers."—Kirkus, STARRED review "Lichtenheld’s first-person narration is just the right amount of cranky, rendering Louis as both sympathetic (he does get thrown in the washing machine, after all) and clueless as to how good he has it."—Publishers Weekly "Rowan-Zoch’s colorful and expressive illustrations complement Lichtenheld’s silly story and truly bring Louis the grumpy bear to life.... Perfect for read-alouds or one-on-one sharing, this is a laugh-out-loud spin on a would-be runaway’s best-laid plans."—School Library Journal "A cheeky reminder to kids to show a little care to what they might be taking for granted."—BCCB —
