Publisher's Description

Cheery persistence wears down a curmudgeonly bear in a wry comedy of manners that ends in a most unlikely friendship.

Bear is quite sure he doesn’t like visitors. He even has a sign. So when a mouse taps on his door one day, Bear tells him to leave. But when Bear goes to the cupboard to get a bowl, there is the mouse — small and gray and bright-eyed. In this slapstick tale that begs to be read aloud, all Bear wants is to eat his breakfast in peace, but the mouse — who keeps popping up in the most unexpected places — just won’t go away!

Author Bio

Bonny Becker, author of a number of award-winning picture books and middle-grade novels, says that the persistent mouse featured in A VISITOR FOR BEAR just popped into her head one day and wouldn’t go away. Several other Bear and Mouse stories are in the works. Bonny Becker lives in Seattle.

Kady MacDonald Denton is the illustrator of TWO HOMES by Claire Masurel and A CHILD'S TREASURY OF NURSERY RHYMES. She lives in Ontario, Canada.
