When Cubfollows his nose through the woods,he discovers a backyard tea party . . . with cookies! He is just about to dig in when the hostess of the tea party shows up. And she has several strong opinions on how Tea Party must be played. Cub tries to follow her rules . . . but just how much can one bear take, even for cookies?

A laugh-out-loud funny look at the required give-and-take of playtime, Tea Party Rules is an eventual friendship story that will delight grubby cubs, fancy girls, and cookie lovers everywhere.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Ooh, how frustrating. A young bear cub stumbles upon a little girl's tea party and really, really just wants a cookie, but tea party rules get in the way. The cub, who, unbeknownst to the girl, has knocked her stuffed bear off a chair and taken his identity, gets carted away as soon as the girl peers closely at him. You're too grubby, she says. Cub does not want a bath. However, he is groomed and then put in a dress and bonnet ( Tea Party Rule: you must be neat ). Soon Cub is seated at the table, and it's finally cookie time, but the rule to eat daintily is out the window. (He has his dignity, after all.) The tables are turned, perfectly so, when the little girl changes the game, and therefore the rules. Dyckman (Boy and Bot, 2012) and Campbell (Flora and Ulysses, 2013) are a winning pair, using their comedic chops to pace the story beautifully. Seeing Cub masquerading as stuffed, with feet sticking stiffly out and eyeballs wide, is laugh-out-loud funny. Campbell's soft sepia-marker-and-colored-pencil illustrations appear on creamy backgrounds, alternating humorous spots and detailed full-page spreads; the depictions of an unhappy bear ensure little ones are in on the joke. This battle of wills between two charmers hits just the right note.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A bear cub sneaks into a girl's tea party and assumes the role of her teddy bear-all with the intent to gobble up cookies-only to discover that he's under the thumb of a mini Martha Stewart. "You're grubby," the girl tells him. "Tea Party Rule: you must be clean." The rules also stipulate that Cub must have his hair styled, wear a pink dress, and (the last straw) "eat daintily." Dyckman's (Boy and Bot) and Campbell's (Flora and Ulysses) story is like a pretty petit four with an unexpectedly zingy filling-it's evident from the sly look in the girl's eyes that she's not fooled one bit by Cub's masquerade. What's really going down is not just a case of bossiness, but a real battle of wills. Who will break first? Or could there be two winners? Campbell's marker and colored pencil drawings strike an ideal balance between girliness and wiliness, with just enough nudges and winks to make readers sympathize with Cub and feel in on the joke. Ages 3-5. Author's agent: Scott Treimel, Scott Treimel NY. Illustrator's agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
