Brief Summary: Bruce became a bear mother of four geese earlier in the first book Mother Bruce after four eggs hatched on his stove. The geese imprinted upon the bear and followed him around everywhere he went. In the winter, Bruce migrates South with them although he really would like to have hibernated in his cave. That makes him very grumpy. When they all return home in the spring, he is even grumpier finding three mice have made his home into a hotel. He clears out the rodents but still has guests sleeping in his bed and eating in his kitchen. The mice return trying to take over. When a van of elephant guests arrive, Bruce loses his temper and throws everyone out of his house. Mother Bruce likes sitting back and enjoying the peace until his geese children convince him to let the three mice in out of the rain.
Comments: One hilarious situation after another. Readers can relate to bear’s grumpiness.
