Summary
By now I think you know what happened to your sandwich.
But you may not know how it happened.
So let me tell you.
It all started with the bear . . .

So begins Julia Sarcone-Roach's delicious tale of a bear, lost in the city, who happens upon an unattended sandwich in the park. The bear's journey from forest to city and back home again is full of happy accidents, funny encounters, and sensory delights. The story is so engrossing, it's not until the very end that we begin to suspect this is a TALL tale.

The wonderfully told story, spectacular illustrations, and surprise ending make this Julia Sarcone-Roach's best book to date. You'll want to share it with your friends (and keep a close eye on your lunch).
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "By now I think you know what happened to your sandwich, begins the very unreliable narrator in this amusing picture book. His story? A woodland bear fell asleep in the back of a truck and awoke to find himself in the city. Searching for food, he made his way to the park, where he spied that beautiful and delicious sandwich. All alone. After devouring it, he noticed dogs watching him and quickly fled, leaping into a passing boat and eventually making his way home. The book's last pages reveal a dog telling the tale to a little girl. She may or may not see the holes in his story, but many young listeners will enjoy solving the mystery and pointing out the thief. The text is cleverly written, but much of the story unfolds wordlessly in the soft-focus watercolor-and-pencil illustrations, which glow with light and color. The city scenes reward attention with intriguing, sometimes comical details. This is a picture book that kids will want to hear again immediately, once they know who is telling the story.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""By now I think you know what happened to your sandwich," begins the unseen narrator of Sarcone-Roach's (Subway Story) sly tale. "But you may not know how it happened.... It all started with the bear." The narrator spins a long, involved story about how a bear found its way to the city (and the sandwich), while warm, painterly acrylics show what's really going on. The bear finds himself a stowaway on a berry truck that passes "high cliffs" (readers see tall buildings) and arrives in "a new forest" (a lively city street). He makes the city his own, shinnying up fire escapes and riffling ruinously through the papers outside a newsstand, then arrives in the park: "There it was. Your beautiful and delicious sandwich. All alone." The bear gobbles it down and returns to bear country by boat. Or so the storyteller says-he's revealed to be the young sandwich owner's dog, and he might not be entirely trustworthy. The fabricated story and accompanying artwork stand nicely on their own, while the narrative frame delivers an extra comic kick in the pants. Ages 3-7.
