Bears in space! The bears from Breaking News- Bear Alert and Bears to the Rescue are back, and this time they're extraterrestrial.

When a UFO beams up Baby Bear and abducts the family, the human world goes crazy. Hilarity and chaos ensue as scouts, scientists, street vendors, and the mayor try to put their own spin on the story. Intrepid but bumbling reporter Chad Newsworthy covers it all, searching for the truth- Why did aliens snatch up these animals? (Hint- It's someone special's birthday!)
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Chad Newsworthy and the News 3 crew from Bear Alert (2014) and Bears to the Rescue (2016) are back with a new scoop. This time, according to eyewitnesses, woodland, farm, and zoo animals have been carried off by a spaceship. Most of the story focuses on the television coverage, including brief interviews with experts and involved individuals. A couple of quick glimpses of the bewildered captives are inserted between clips. After a day of much brouhaha, the spaceship reappears and the animals descend the lowered walkway carrying party accoutrements. Chad declares, We are not the only party animals in the universe! and all is well. Faux photos featured on the end pages show that the shindig was a seven-year-old alien's birthday party. The crisp computer-generated illustrations range from brightly colored television images to dark, atmospheric night and space scenes. Although the humans dominate the story, the adorable animals are the true stars one wishes there were more party scenes and less news coverage. No matter, it's on to the next news cycle.--Enos, Randall Copyright 2018 Booklist"
