KIRKUS REVIEW

The first-person plaint of a little-boy bear who resists going to ""fancy restaurants,"" or even to parties with his parents, because ""l don't know how to act."" This less-than-crushing problem is solved when Europe-going Uncle Harry invites the family out: the apprehensive little bear gets a few tips on successful socializing (""All you do is listen, ask questions, and tell stories when it's your turn""), and finds that they work. It's a rare tyke of three or four (this is a very small, slight book) who agonizes over this sort of situation--or who's tongue-tied in a restaurant (except under the sternest parental eye). A poor excuse for a book altogether.
