“Like Frog and Toad before them, this seemingly mis-matched duo of curmudgeonly Bear and winsome Mouse make for a charming pair of fast friends. Once again, Bear receives a somewhat unwelcome visitor when Mouse arrives unexpectedly for a sleepover, interrupting Bear's evening routine. However, an understanding friend turns out to be just what Bear needs to get a good night's sleep. Denton's expressive watercolors and Becker's pitch-perfect, funny story work together perfectly to make this another great read aloud, in this follow-up picture book to their E.B.White Read Aloud Award-winning A Visitor for Bear.”
— Lauren Mayer, University Book Store, Seattle, WA

Description


“Denton’s ink and watercolor illustrations ably express the dry humor of Becker’s dialogue and personifications, which make this a bedtime standout.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Bear must have absolute quiet when he goes to bed. But the effervescent Mouse, small and gray and bright-eyed, finds it terribly hard to be as quiet as a . . . well, you know. With masterfully paced slapstick humor, droll repartee, and comic visual details, the curmudgeonly Bear and his irrepressible friend Mouse return in another wry adventure.
