KIRKUS REVIEW

The stylishly dressed Lonely Doll and her teddy bear friends haven't changed but the city (New York) has become so crowded, dirty, noisy and polluted that Mr. Bear decides to move the menage to the country. Edith and Little Bear, however, want to stay where they are (because ""this is our home""), and when picketing City Hall doesn't bring about a cleaner city the two of them set to work picking up litter, mopping the sidewalk, recycling cans and bottles, and reporting smoke. ""So Mr. Bear, Edith, and Little Bear stayed in their own place and tried to make it better."" Fans of Edith and her ursine companions may find them adorable in beads and fringe and miniature picket signs, but we'd prefer our ecology lessons with more substance and less fancy wrapping.
