Item Description...
The Small Bears assemble their detective gear when Papa Bear decides to find the thief who has Farmer Ben's prize pumpkin

Publishers Description
Can the Bear Detectives find Farmer Ben's missing pumpkin?
With some misguided–but always enthusiastic and well-meaning–advice from Papa Bear, they're hot on the trail of the pumpkin thief. Illus. in full color.
"Papa Bear tries to solve the mystery of Farmer Ben's missing pumpkin. Will keep beginning readers in stitches and prove enticing even to reluctant readers."--School Library Journal.
Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia.  They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art.  They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art.  During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory.  When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines.  After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy.  Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt .  It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears".  

Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures.  They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

funny  Dec 16, 2005
i guess you gotta be a fan of the berenstein bears in order to kinda enjoy this book, or else maybe u just have a different sense of humor, or maybe u jsut like mysteries like this one. this book is also a ryming book, which can make it more interseting, and it is pretty funny, which will make it fun for the kids to read
The Bear Detectives  Nov 9, 2003
We start of this story by hearing that Farmer Ben's first prize pumpkin can't be found anywhere. "Do not worry Farmer Ben. The BEAR DETECTIVES will find it again!" But before they can get to work finding the pumpkin, Father Bear (and his old dog Snuff) appear wanting to help. Father Bear and Snuff then rush off along the road with very little clue of where they are going

Father Bear and Snuff lead the Bear Detectives all over. Before turning the case over to the Bear Detectives, they manage to check out a "cow, brown and white. Checked out a scarecrow after a fight." "Checked out a haystack. Three pigs in a pen...put the [hand] cuffs on Farmer Ben's hen."

Of course, as soon as Father Bear turns over the case, the Bear Detectives manage to find the thief, who really wasn't a thief, right away. As it turns out, Mrs. Ben had 'stolen' the pumpkin to make pumpkin pies, and everyone (including the chicken handcuffed to Father Bear) got a pie to eat.

This book flows nicely, and is told in rhyme. The pictures add a lot to the book. They exaggerate on the misfortunes of poor Father Bear as he searches for the pie. They also are bright, colorful and funny. The story is very cute.


The Bear Detectives  Dec 11, 2002
In this book, the bears are looking for Farmer Ben's missing pumpkin. Papa Bear is also coming along to help, but he becomes more of a hazard. They look all over, following the clues they pick up, and the ones their dog Snuff does. And they finally find out who it is, it was Farmer Ben's wife. She made the pumpkin into pie. As they are looking for these clues, they are having fun. I liked this book as a child because it was a mystery, and I had to try to figure out who too the pumpkin.
Papa Bear does it again..!  Dec 3, 2002
In THE BEAR DETECTIVES, by Stan and Jan Berenstain, Farmer Ben's First Prize pumpkin goes missing and the Bear Detectives are called upon. Though guess who was standing about, you guessed it, Papa Bear. He takes his old dog Snuff this way and that, trying to find the pumpkin theif. In no time flat, he finds--A Cow?? A cow, then some pigs, and after that some pigs. Still not having learned his lesson yet, Papa Bear makes one mistake after another. A scarecrow, a haystack, and even a bunch of hens! In the end a crook was caught, though is it really a crook, or is it not? 3 stars out of 5.
