Jan Berenstain Featured in New Book Trailer

The literary world mourned the passing of Jan Berenstain this year, but a new book trailer (video embedded above) features the co-creator of the Berenstain Bears talking about a new book.

After listening to some advice from their then-editor Theodor Seuss Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss), the husband-and-wife writing duo Stan and Jan Berenstain wrote a picture book about penguins. The manuscript for Nothing Ever Happens in the South Pole was “put on the back burner” for decades, but HarperCollins released it this year to celebrate The Berenstain Bears‘ 50th anniversary.

The video features Jan and her son Mike Berenstain (who helped to illustrate the project) discussing the book.

The Celebrity Cafe reported that the story chronicles the adventures of “a little penguin that misses the adventures around him because he is always looking for something bigger, will be available in August.”
