KIRKUS REVIEW

We first meet big fat Morry, a bear, waiting eagerly at a mountain lake for the campers to arrive. But soon Morry is worrying that he isn't a good counselor because the campers tease him for his sedentary ways. What's the obvious solution? Why, have Morry rescue a camper when a storm starts tossing their homemade raft. Have the mast fall on Morry's foot (""hoooh oowhoo ooooo,"" howls Morry as the campers look dejected) and have Morry wake up in the hospital (""Oh dear, now everyone will think I'm a bad counselor"")--to a room full of cards and flowers and visits from the campers. Salzman does just that, in jerky prose and equally obvious drawings of a particularly unappealing animal crew.
