roawrJoose, Barbara.  Roawr! Illustrated by Jan Jutte.  New York: Philomel Books. 2009.  ISBN: 9780399247774.

This book snaps, cracks, and roars with suspenseful ear pleasing language as Joose leads a little boy through a nighttime encounter with a patch-eyed bear.  With mama obliviously sleeping and papa away, it is up to our kufi hatted hero to keep everyone safe.  Complications arise once the behemoth has been captured.  What does one do with a crabby roaring bear?  Juttes ink and watercolor illustrations complement the late night adventure with bold black lines and eerie blues and greens.
