Review by School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-Seven spooky animated tales from the mid-1980s feature the beloved Berenstain Bear family. In "The Great Bat Cave," Sister and Brother outsmart Raffish Ralph to save a bat sanctuary from becoming a tourist attraction. Papa's competitive spirit gets the better of him in the town's pumpkin-carving contest in "The Spookiest Pumpkin." When Farmer Bear's prize-winning pumpkin goes missing, Brother and Sister solve the mystery in "The Missing Pumpkin." In "The Wicked Weasel Spell," Raffish Ralph and McGreed Weasel hypnotize good-natured Big Paw to get rid of the town's bears, but Brother saves the day. In "The Trojan Pumpkin," McGreed gives Papa a suspicious pumpkin seed that grows into a giant gourd where the weasel gang is hiding and ready to attack. The cubs need to spend the night in Great Grizzly Forest to earn a merit badge in "Bust a Ghos," and Papa tries to trick them into believing the forest is haunted. Finally, the bear family must go to "The Spooky Old Mansion" at the stroke of midnight to claim a gift left by the late Widow Grizzly. Mama helps them conquer their fears and turn the abandoned house into a library and community center. Although the stories are didactic, the Berenstain adventures continue to appeal to young readers and viewers.-Barbara Auerbach, P.S. 217, Brooklyn, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
