KIRKUS REVIEW

The five differently-colored, otherwise-identical teddy bears of The Bears Who Went to the Seaside, etc., are moving--and ""Robert,"" for no apparent reason, doesn't like the idea. (They have no individuality, that is, apart from their names.) So he's ornery. And then, en route, some of his things drop out of his bicycle basket. (Why only out of his is also inexplicable.) So he has to go back and look for them; and he gets lost; and two girl bears show him the way to his new home; and Charles, John, William, and Andrew call him a baby for crying. So he goes out to sleep in his tent--until the others say, consolingly, ""Bears do cry sometimes."" More plot, of a sort, than its predecessors; but only an imitation-story--with no motivation, no emotional or dramatic basis, for almost anything that occurs.
