Publishers Weekly praises gifted author Leo Landry's Grin and Bear It as a ''smart message about partnership, ingenuity, and pursuing one's goals.'' Bear wants to be a comedian. He dreams of performing onstage and making his friends laugh. The only problem is that Bear has stage fright. Performing in front of others makes his knees knock and his fur freeze. What's a bear to do? Hopefully, with a little help from his friends, Bear can find a way to achieve his goal. ''Everyone- Bear, friends and readers- will laugh in the end.''- Kirkus Reviews

"When Bear is introduced on Woodland Stage one Saturday night, his dream comes true. He's always wanted a chance to tell his jokes, such as "What is a bear's favorite baseball team?" and "What is the proper way to hold a bat?" Alas, when stage fright takes its toll and things don't go as planned, it takes a loving hummingbird to help Bear realize his potential. L.J. Ganser brings Landry's beginning chapter book to life delightfully. His Bear speaks with a deep and rich voice his hummingbird has punch and verve and the speed of this species. As each character practices jokes, Ganser delivers all the animation of a stage performance. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
