Can a relentlessly cheery Mouse wear down a party-pooping Bear? The unlikely pair are back in a droll, utterly charming tale that early readers will celebrate.
Bear does not like birthdays. He doesn’t like parties or balloons, cards or candles. In fact, Bear does not like anything to do with birthdays at all. He would much rather spend his birthday alone cleaning his house, but Mouse, small and gray and bright-eyed, has other ideas. The author and illustrator who created the best-selling picture book A VISITOR FOR BEAR return with another comedy about the curmudgeonly Bear and his eager friend Mouse, this time in an early-reader format.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My "not quite four year old" granddaughter really got quite caught up with the attitude and antics of Bear and his "small, grey and bright eyed" friend Mouse in "A Visitor for Bear". This tale of Bear and his birthday is just as much fun to read and/or listen to. Friendship and persistence are both part of the themes for these stories. We are both hoping more stories about these two friends will be forthcoming.
