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!
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.
—New York Times Book Review
The lively repetition and superb pacing make this an ideal choice for storytime.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
Charmingly droll, watercolor, ink and gouache illustrations, excellent pacing and the contrast in the sizes of Bear and mouse are a perfect comedic mixture.
A surefire storytime hit, <I>A Visitor for Bear</I> won’t wear out its welcome.
The characters are highly expressive, making the pictures fun, and the dramatic text will lend itself to reading aloud.
