As luck would have it: from the Brothers Grimm
A whimsical retelling of a Grimm Brothers classic When Mama and Papa Bear go to look after Grandmother, they leave Jonas and Juniper in charge of the household. The bear twins take their instructions a little too literally, leading to a cascade of domestic mishaps, including the theft of their family fortune. Determined to recover it before their parents return home, the endearing siblings unleash pandemonium when the stumble on the robbers' hideout. In this tribute to the Brothers Grimm, Robert D. San Souci recasts the characters from their story "Clever Elsie" but retains the original's celebrations of the absurd and endearing folly. Daniel San Souci's watercolor-and-pencil illustrations capture Jonas and Juniper's good intentions and flawed logic with humor and appreciation. This family-centered story teaches readers about sharing and responsibility.
