It seems like Bear can sleep through anything. As a succession of animals enter his cave to escape the fierce storm, he continues to snore. Mouse makes a nice warm fire, Hare cooks popcorn and Badger brings treats...They are having a great time. But when Bear wakes up and realises he's missed out on the fun, his visitors fear the worst. Can Bear be persuaded to join the party? This read-aloud rhyming story has fun, suspense and a happy ending - with Jane Chapman's beautiful, captivating illustrations and Karma Wilson's absorbing, lyrical words perfectly depicting the companionship of the warm, cosy cave and the contrast with the wild storm outside.
This children's book is just what I wanted for my granddaughter. It was shipped very quickly and the book arrived in the condition exactly as it was stated.

ADORABLE Story and Illustrations
This book is adorable both for the rhyming story words and also for its beautiful illustrations. It's about a snoozy bear in his cave who keeps snoozing while animal friends come in to get warm. As more animals come in they have tea and corn together next to a little campfire near bear. Even more animals come in from the cold and begin to have a little party and make some noises around the campfire. Finally, bear wakes up and realizes that he's missed out on all the fun, but all his friends decide they can have some more tea and corn next the fire with Bear, and in the morning, when bear is wide awake, Bear's friends snooze just like Bear had done in the night. It's a fun story with a lot of excitment, socializing and reactions that happen, with lots of great illustrations to make it all the more fun and exciting. Wonderful and beautiful story.
Publishers Weekly, 2005-10-24 Littlest hands will also clamor for the board book edition of Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson, illus. by Jane Chapman, a tale of hibernation and friendship. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 2001-11-26 The title also serves as the book's refrain: because he's hibernating, the fluffy, snoring Bear remains oblivious as Mouse, Hare, Badger, Mole, Wren and Raven seek refuge in his cave from the blowing snow and frigid temperatures. Working in soft-textured acrylics, Chapman (Happy and Honey) makes both the biting weather and the warm, womb-like shelter of Bear's cave palpable. The once bedraggled animals perk up considerably, and first-time author Wilson describes the ensuing high spirits with a musical flair: "They tweet and they titter./ They chat and they chitter./ But the bear snores on." There's a moment of tension when Bear unexpectedly wakes up and the uninvited guests wonder if they'll be evicted. But Wilson demonstrates how well she knows her audience: the bear only bemoans the fact that he slept through all the fun; the unwitting host proves that he may be the biggest party animal of all.
