Review: There was something wrong with the tumbling pirates. The 4th of July celebration was coming up, but the acrobatic cubs were sick. It was a medical mystery. This sounded like a case for Doctor Marsha Roo. Onward to Bear Foot Park.

Like always, Doctoroo takes the necessary steps to figure out this medical mystery. Poor bears really were sick. What can the doctor do to make them feel better?

Like any doctor, Doctoroo goes through a process of elimination to rule out possible ailments. It’s not the flu or a rash. Could this have something to do with a bear’s hibernation period?

The illustrations were so colorful and vibrant, and the facial expressions were so animated. The text was abundant. In fact, it was probably too abundant. But it did contain some interesting facts about bears.

Towards the end, the events were a little wild and quirky. But, at least, Doctoroo and her teammates found the source of the cubs’ tummy troubles.

A fun and interesting story with a good moral on eating too much junk food.
