Editorial Reviews

Poulsen's patience and dedication to her animal wards come out clearly in this, her first book. There's no wandering off the trail for her. Her focus is narrow and her message is precise: bears need our help. The information she shares with us is fascinating. —Quill & Quire


You will smile, laugh, and even shed a tear or two while reading this book and perhaps be moved to reach out in some way to help a bear smile somewhere in the world. If you do, you will be making this world a better place as Poulsen has done by bringing us Smiling Bears. —Bear Matters BC


Else Poulsen is in fact someone who knows bears . . . Poulsen's book is informed, intelligent, and imbued with a love of bears. —Halifax Sunday Herald


An inspiring trip into the minds and reality of bears. —Masson Jeffrey
