"If It's No Trouble ... A Big Polar Bear" is still a rib-tickling adventure that children and grown-ups will enjoy following.And readers, adult ones especially, will appreciate how the book incorporates aspects of Newfoundland and Labrador's heritage and culture. (Review for If it's no Trouble, A Big Polar Bear. Darrell Squires, The Western Star
" The bright cheerful illustrations help create a sense of playfulness and whimsy, and the story begs to be read aloud with its litany of falling, prancing and squelching critters who each find some new item to Chris's costume. While youngsters will love the familiarity of the format, they will equally enjoy the new element that Chris Moose brings to this timeless classic." Lisa Doucet, Atlantic Books Today
