When the impish Mouse comes to spend the night, Bear is in for a rude - and very funny - awakening in this irresistible new story starring the unlikely pair. Bear must have absolute quiet when he goes to bed. He likes to set out his glass of water, adjust his nightcap, fluff up his favourite pillow and then drift peacefully off to sleep. But the effervescent Mouse, small and grey and bright-eyed, finds it terribly hard to be as quiet as a...well, you know. With masterfully paced slapstick humour, droll repartee and comic visual detail, "A Bedtime for Bear" sees the curmudgeonly Bear and his irrepressible friend Mouse return in a third wry adventure that will have readers of all ages laughing in recognition. The longed - for return of the hilariously mismatched pair from the bestselling and award-winning "A Visitor for Bear". Another terrific read-aloud picture book that's perfect at any time - not least bedtime! Both Bear and Mouse are adorable - if you can read this without smiling you have a heart of stone.

Publishers Weekly, 2010-07-19 Bear and Mouse return to prove that friends may not be perfect, but they're there when it matters most. Bear can't stand noise at bedtime, so he isn't pleased when Mouse turns up to spend the night. Mouse's humming, squeaking, and whispers of "Good night!" make Bear lose his patience, but when the house at last falls silent, Bear discovers that having everything just so is less important than having a friend when nighttime sounds turn scary. Denton's ink and watercolor illustrations ably express the dry humor of Becker's dialogue and personifications, which make this a bedtime standout. Ages 5-7. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
