Young children who have pestered their parents into letting them stay up late past bedtime will relate to the lovable antics of Bear and Mouse in this picture book. Bear is readying himself for a restful sleep when little Mouse knocks on the door, reminding Bear of their plans for a sleepover. The text follows the illustrations closely, with the size of the font growing in size when the situation gets more intense or exciting (a useful device for letting the storyteller know when to raise their voice!). The illustrations are done in a soft palette of colors befitting a late night storytime. The tender relationship between the two unlikely friends, though, is perhaps the most endearing aspect of the book. Highly recommended. For ages 2-6.
