    2. Even though, my A to Z Children’s Picture Book Series Reading Challenge was so 2011, I decided to continue it."Blackboard Bear" is a very sparse story but filled with charm, very reminiscent of "Harold and the Purple Crayon." The ending is kind of creepy or is just very dark humor depending on how you want to look at it.

The ending is vaguely disturbing--he draws pictures of the other kids, the bear eats them, and our hero wipes his mouth with a red cloth, making it look like blood.

    7. This is an inspriring story about being yourself. This is a book to read to students who feel lonely and are having a hard time making friends. This makes it a good book for new ESOL students who are making friends. This book has simple language and clear pictures that are specific to the story.

    10. This book wants to be like Harold and the Purple Crayon and Where the Wild Things Are, but it does quite have the magic of either.
