Over and Under are two friends, and they're enjoying a day at the park. They go on the swings (Over goes over Under) and the seesaw (Under is under Over). They meet a hot-dog dog (who joins them for a hot dog). And then they spot . . . a bear! (Unbearable!) But is he really the overall scary creature they first understand him to be?

A perfectly paced, relatable comedy sure to tickle the preschool set with its exuberant illustrations and message of self-actualization. -- School Library Journal
