The Teddy Bear Men: Theodore Roosevelt and Clifford Berryman by Linda Mullins is a great book that I found hard to put down before reading every word and experiencing every picture. I find my joy and enthusiasm for this book overflowing into my conversations and e-mails.The book delightfully combines teddy bears, political cartoons, and history in pictures and words. Although the intent of author Linda Mullins in writing this book was not to write a biography of either Theodore Roosevelt or Clifford Berryman, there is enough biography information included to bring their personalities and character to life and give perspective to the book. Clifford Berryman is described as "one of the most thoughtful and constructive political philosophers of his day". Berryman possessed the unusual ability to achieve "satire that never left a scar" in his political cartoons. He is best know for his political cartoons of President Teddy Roosevelt with his trade mark teddy bear in them.President Theodore Roosevelt is described as " a boy who grew up to be the man of his dreams". The association of teddy bears and big game hunting with Theodore Roosevelt is well know. The author traces the development of Clifford Berryman's cartoon signature, the Berryman/Roosevelt Bear, and discusses the public love and acceptance of this delightful little bear and the fascinating association of teddy bears with the lives of both of these great men.The copies of Berryman's cartoons richly enhance the experience of the book as do the teddy bear illustrations. The Teddy Bear Man: Theodore Roosevelt and Clifford Berryman by Linda Mullins is a "must have" addition to the collection of any collector of political cartoons or teddy bear lover.Researching students will find the book a good resource for human interest to include in term papers on either Roosevelt or Berryman and related subjects.
