Review of a book from Candlewick Press

A Bedtime for Bear by Bonnie Becker, illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton is another winner for Candlewick Press. I read this book with pleasure. Bear is a warm, loving character who has a sleepover with his friend mouse. Bear wants the house to be quiet but mouse keeps on disturbing him through the night. Finally, Bear gets upset and says, "Will this torment never cease!" wailed Bear. Mouse responds
like this, "Sorry, Bear. Good night, Bear," whispered Mouse, tiptoeing back into bed as quiet as a ...well, you know." This I believe is the climax of the story. Then there is a turn of events which I found adorable.
I guess you'll have to read this book to discover the end! I recommend this book highly. I give this book five out of five books! Entertaining!
