Mother Bruce

Cover: 'Mother Bruce'

Staff Review: "Mother Bruce" by Ryan T. Higgins


Bruce is a grumpy bear who lives alone and has one passion—eggs. He loves making fancy egg recipes that he finds on the Internet, but one day he gets a big surprise. Before he gets his goose eggs cooked, they hatch and call him “Mama.” He tries repeatedly to get rid of the goslings, even by being extra grumpy and roaring, but they won’t leave, not even when all the other geese are flying south. This cute, humorous tale of mistaken identity is one that kids will absolutely love and adults will also enjoy reading to them over and over again.

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book
