Product description

Review

'The Bears Famous Invasion of Sicily is one of the noblest books I know.' --Lemony Snicket

'Out of Italy, which gave the world Pinocchio, has come a new and fine children's story, the kind that grown-ups borrow from kids.' --Time

'This moving story... is one that children of nine-plus will remember enjoying long after they have finished reading. A bonus is a quirky readers companion.' --Newbury Weekly News
