$17.99

An Admiral grandfather shares with his grandchildren Grace, Charlie, and Henry the tales of his time as a cadet bearkeeper at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. In doing so he passes the torch to them– the next keepers of the legend, preserving in time the antics of the real bear mascots that were the inspiration for this book. As he reads the illustrated tale, the children occasionally stop to imitate the silly behavior of the bear mascot. In the story related to the children, Objee, short for objectionable presence, is rescued by Cadet Evans and brought to the Academy. Hijinks begin as soon as Objee is sworn in as a cadet herself; the bugles of the call to colors send her scrambling up a tree, where the academy’s superintendent hears her whining. Objee spends her days living and exercising with the cadets and serves as a mascot at football games; an attempt by the rival team to kidnap her goes awry when Objee begins to eat her kidnappers’ van from the inside out. Throughout, Grandfather explains that Objee embodies the “strength, character and devotion” of the Coast Guard.
