When the impish Mouse comes to spend the night, Bear is in for a rude - and very funny - awakening in this irresistible bedtime story starring the unlikely pair. Bear must have absolute quiet when he goes to bed. He likes to set out his glass of water, adjust his nightcap, fluff up his favourite pillow and then drift peacefully off to sleep. But the effervescent Mouse, small and grey and bright-eyed, finds it terribly hard to be as quiet as a...well, you know. With masterfully paced slapstick humour, droll repartee and comic visual detail, A Bedtime for Bear sees the curmudgeonly Bear and his irrepressible friend Mouse return in a third wry adventure that will have readers of all ages laughing in recognition. This is the longed-for return of the hilariously mismatched pair from the bestselling and award-winning "A Visitor for Bear". Another terrific read-aloud picture book that's perfect at any time - not least bedtime! On publication this was Amazon's 'Best of the Month' (September 2010).
