Publishers Weekly, 2002-05-27 Moosie Moose knocks on Bearsie Bear's door to ask if he may sleep over on a cold evening in the first of a series of guest-proposed invitations. "This cumulative caper uses repetition and alliteration to rollicking effect," said PW, describing the tale as "especially suitable for a bedtime giggle or two." Ages 3-8.

Publishers Weekly, 1997-09-15 The creator of the affable Lyle, Lyle Crocodile is as playful as ever in this cumulative caper that uses repetition and alliteration to rollicking effect. On a cold evening as "the wind hissed and howled," a chilly Moosie Moose knocks at Bearsie Bear's door to ask if he may sleep over. Five other animals in turn make the same request, each time the most recent arrival answers the door for the newcomer, who then leaps joyously into Bearsie's increasingly crowded bed. Waber's effervescent watercolors depict the wide-eyed gang, with only heads and paws (or claws or hooves) showing from under the bedspread, until Porkie Porcupine shows up and the six sleepy creatures wisely chime "Uh-oh." Waber's precisely timed splashes of slapstick (twice the remark, "You can say that again" brings on a repetition of what was just said) adds to the comedy of the tale. A great pick for both beginning readers and for reading aloud in a variety of voices, this comical nocturnal tale is especially suitable for a bedtime giggle or two. Ages 3-6. (Oct.)
