Since only Julia can actually see Mischa, things get a bit awkward when he appears. She has to make up stories, and life gets complicated. The Barely Visible Bear is just the kind of story, complications and all, that young children can relate to, and Julia's relationship with Mischa is fun for us to follow. There is a little boating adventure to add spice to the story, and author Pollock ends it on a happily ever after note that will leave young readers smiling.
The author makes us want to be friends with Julia and her entire family as they try to understand what is going on with Mischa, the barely visible bear. Although the book has a definite ending, it does leave room for a sequel where this furry lifesaver can explain more about his background as he continues to watch over Julia.
