How many ways can a Little Bear find to avoid settling down for his long winter sleep? Lots! But if he goes to sleep late, will Mother Bear be able to wake him up when Spring comes?

Children will enjoy Little Bear's antics in the snow while parents will recognise some of his tricks.


'Gemma enjoyed reading it and loved the pictures. She thought that the little bear was really cheeky. A good night-time read.'
-- Debbie with Gemma (7), Education Otherwise, October 2005

'This is a story for children who just won't go to bed on time. This is a charming book with beautiful, soft focus illustrations. My seven-year-old was able to read it for herself, but it would be suitable for reading aloud to any child aged three and over.'
-- Jo Rogers, Families Online (www.familiesonline.co.uk), Autumn 2005

'This is a story that both parents and children will identify with. It is beautifully illustrated by an award-winning artist whose paintings capture both the mood of the story and the characteristics of brown bears.'
-- School Librarian, Spring 2006

'A fun, playful tale that is complemented with large watercolour-style illustrations.'
-- Family Interest, October 2005

'This is a lovely story which is beautifully illustrated.'
--Creative Steps, Nov/Dec 2006
