A Library Book for Bear

author: Bonny Becker
illustrator: Kady MacDonald Denton

series name:
Bear and Mouse

Bear does not want to go to the library. He is quite sure he already has all the books he will ever need. Yet the relentlessly cheery Mouse, small and gray and bright-eyed, thinks different. When Bear reluctantly agrees to go with his friend to the big library, neither rocket ships nor wooden canoes are enough for Bearís picky tastes. How will Mouse ever find the perfect book for Bear? Children will giggle themselves silly as Bearís arguments give way to his inevitable curiosity, leading up to a satisfying story hour and a humorously just-right library book.

Curmudgeonly Bear succumbs to Mouseís entreaties and discovers the joy of books in a hilarious story that fans will covet for their own library.
