What's Gnawing Around About

Publisher Summary

The first book in a funny chapter book series filled with full color illustrations and adorable animals! To the Super Happy Party Bears, everything is a good thing. Their entire attitude can be summed up in one word: YAY! They love doughnuts, dancing, and above all else―a good party. Not so for the rest of the animals living in the Grumpy Woods. They find the bears terribly annoying. When a few beavers come to town, the Grumpy Woods are even grumpier than usual. These beavers are drying up their river with their dam . . . the beavers are ruining everything! They must leave―it is decreed! But the Super Happy Party Bears just love the beavers! As the Grumpy Woods scheme to unwelcome them, the Super Happy Party Bears throw them a housewarming party that will prove dancing can always save the day.
