Review:The inhabitants of Yellowtooth in the frozen north brighten their long winter by celebrating New Year's Day with a Muffin Festival. The constable, Officer Bunny, takes his duty toward the inhabitants seriously. Irving and Muktuk are ever on the prowl for muffins so Officer Bunny must be ever alert. The two bad bears are always foiled by the bunny. Fortunately for readers, however, bad bears never say die. This cheerfully ludicrous story ends with the villains meeting their comeuppance. Sort of.
