"About the Book
 The Anthology of Stingy Bear’s Adventures is a collection of fifty two fictional short stories intended for readers from ages 10 to 110.  These stories are humorous, interesting, and unique.  Young readers will be greatly entertained by the antics and adventures of a very greedy and narcissistic little bear named Solomon Von Bruinmeister III a.k.a. “Stingy Bear.”  The more mature reader will often be intrigued by the considerable social and political satire in the book. 
In a few stories, the Author deliberately allows some of Father Bear’s inner feelings and thoughts to be revealed.     These stories are intended to convey a moral that will encourage discussion between children and their parents.  Numerous vocabulary words are introduced in the book as well as themes that instill social political awareness.  Therefore, the Author believes that these stories will be a valuable teaching tool for those who home school.
With these provocative thoughts in mind, let us venture forth into the community of Bruin Dale where Stingy Bear resides with his parents in a cave at 8008 Bearson Court.  Abearika may never be the same again."

When Father Bear’s resentment at paying property taxes to support school construction takes an almost anarchist tone–“Voting is a mere distraction for the gullible masses”–some readers may feel he’s sending Stingy mixed messages about responsibility and public-spiritedness.
