Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Donovan looks in the fridge but is disappointed to see that there is no bear, since his grandfather says he used to eat bear for breakfast. So Donovan sets off to bag a bear of his own. In a "going on a lion hunt" adventure, he stalks and is stalked by an ant, a squirrel, and a dog -- but they are not bears, so he shoos them away. Finally Donovan meets a real bear, which GROWLS at him! Donovan runs all the way home but the bear follows him into the kitchen and chases his mom around the table until grandfather hits it on the head with a frying pan: BONGGGGG! and the bear runs away. Then they all sit down to a nice breakfast that doesn't have any teeth: Pizza!"-- Provided by publisher.
