Review: 'A Visitor for Bear' by Bonny Becker

A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker, Illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton, 2008, Candlewick Press, $16.99, hardbound, 52 pages. Category/Genre: mainstream. Cover: excellent. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million. 

This is a very charming story about a bear who doesn't like visitors, and a mouse who refuses to take no for an answer.

Bear has a large sign on his door confirming that he doesn't like visitors. In spite of this, a mouse knocks on the door, turns up in the oddest places, and in general makes quite a nuisance of himself whilst Bear tries (unsuccessfully) to have a single cup of tea and breakfast for one. 

The mouse's antics, coupled with Bear's humourous reactions, make this book one both adults and children will enjoy reading over and over again. 

For ages 2-5. 

If you like this one, try: A Birthday for Bear, by Bonny Becker.
