A park ranger and a bear face off in a battle of signs as they each try to get treats from visiting campers.
This is an enjoyable story with a fun, happy ending. The best part is the “war with words” as the ranger and bear alter the signs, providing funny moments that make this a fun read. The color palette fits perfectly with the darling illustrations.
