The creator of the New York Times bestselling The Bear Ate Your Sandwich brings us another sly story of a hungry bear and a smooth-talking narrator.
A tough gumshoe of a cat – the name’s Muffin – protects his territory: The Little Bear Bakery. But there are no bears here. Not on Muffin’s watch.

"Moments of exaggerated animal shock deliver laughs, and the bakery havoc that follows is all that young fans of sugary chaos might hope for."—Publishers Weekly,
"Young readers will adore the simple yet expressive illustrations. A cute and direct, yet elevated, tale.
