Mother Bruce

Title:  Mother Bruce

Author:  Ryan T. Higgins


Bruce is a cantankerous bear who loves nothing more than searching the forest high and low for fresh ingredients to use in his culinary masterpieces. But when the eggs he gathered hatch into goslings, Bruce finds he can’t quite bring himself to cook them. Meanwhile, the goslings imprint on Bruce, immediately declaring him their mama. Their actual mother has already flown south for the winter, so Bruce is stuck with four very needy babies he never wanted in the first place.  Mother Bruce is a clever, imaginative story that will have readers laughing out loud.
