About the authors

Stan berenstain.

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 370 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' love of reading has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.

Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books--even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.

Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.

The Berenstain Bears and the Homework Hassle

“If you're a bear for TV, loud music, and fun, how ya gonna get your homework done?” — Opening quote for The Berenstain Bears and the Homework Hassle

The Berenstain Bears and the Homework Hassle is a book in the Berenstain Bears First Time Books series that was originally published on July 14, 1997.

It was adapted into an episode of the same name for the 2003 TV series The Berenstain Bears .

Synopsis [ ]

Mama and Papa find out that Brother had been falling behind on his grades. They learn that Brother has been too indulged into listening to music, watching TV, and talking to Cousin Freddy on the phone. When Brother explains that the problem is too much homework, he goes to Gramps and Gran for help.

Meanwhile, Papa finds himself in hot water with the Bear Revenue Service (BRS) because he had been behind on paying his taxes.

Mama Bear and Papa Bear suddenly smell something funny. Mama Bear discovers the funny smell smells like garbage and it was coming from Brother’s backpack. After dumping the garbage out of the backpack, she finds an old, wrinkled letter from Brother’s teacher, Teacher Bob. It says that Brother is falling behind from school.

Mama and Papa find Brother with all sorts of distractions near the TV, but nonetheless there was homework on the table. Papa chastises Brother for not reading much of anything and had been on Mars for all the attention he’s been paying to his homework. Mama then chastises Brother that his backpack is not private anymore when it starts to smell like garbage.

Sister smugly says that there’s a lot for Brother to go around than to catch up on his homework, much to Brother’s annoyance. Mama tells everyone to calm down to figure out what the problem is, but Brother angrily tells them that the problem was too much homework. Papa calms him down and asks him what his homework was for today, which was adding and subtracting fractions, as well as memorizing two stanzas of “The Bear Stood On the Burning Deck”. Papa then replies that it seemed like far less homework than he claimed, and that the real problem was that Brother didn’t take care of business and he was falling behind at school. He punishes Brother for no more other stuff and it’s just him and his homework until he’s all caught up, much to Brother’s dismay.

He sadly heads out the door for a walk, but it lead him to Gramps and Gran’s house. He explains to him that he is punished for no other stuff until he was caught up on his homework, which Brother says will be impossible now, considering how far behind he’s fallen. But Gramps gives him advice that he will catch up on his homework at school, revealing that Papa used to be the same way at his age, which made Brother feel better.

Brother returns home and Papa was talking to a man from the BRS. The man replies that Papa was falling behind in his taxes and tells him to catch up. And so. Brother was starting to catch up on his homework and Papa was catching up on his tax payments, which was a good lesson for the both of them.

  • This is one of the few books where Papa is referred to as "Dad" rather than his name.
