When Papa decides to clean the house, he nearly destroys it instead!
When Cousin Bertha's first cub turns out to be twins instead, Mama Bear hurries off to help out the new mother, leaving Papa Bear in charge of the house. Always confident—and always clumsy!—Papa has lots of ideas for improving the housekeeping. But the big cleanup will not be as tidy as he expects.
Beating the rugs outside gets dust all over the laundry. His famous honey-mustard pancakes end up stuck to the ceiling. And when he decides to warm the house up with a nice homey fire, he almost burns the family tree to the ground! If Brother and Sister try as hard as they can, they might get the house fixed up before Mama returns—as long as Papa Bear stays out of their way!
