Description

A modern day bear family meetsThe Simpsons in this rollicking yarn about one really, really terrible week.

Tucker Grizzwell is having the worst week ever. He is due to attend the annual Jaws & Claws weekend with his dad, where young grizzlies learn how to be terrifying predators. Problem is, Tucker doesn't even like to eat meat, let alone have to kill it first! Plus, didn't some kid get eaten last year during the dumpster-diving lesson?

And before he can even get to the weekend, Tucker must endure a week's worth of middle school indignities, including pop quizzes, too much homework, bad cafeteria food, friends who are not the brightest lighthouses on the coast, an older sister who ignores him in the hallways, and one very unfortunate bus ride. The graphic novel format is perfect for the showcasing the daily trials and tribulations of this middle school grizzly cub.
