The Sniffles for Bear

Bear and Mouse
Bear has a terrible cold. In fact, Bear is quite sure that no one has ever been as sick as he is. So when Mouse comes over eager to make Bear “as good as new,” the pitifully coughing Bear is convinced that his tiny friend does not appreciate the gravity of the situation. Can there be any saving Bear from his certain demise? Welcome the world’s most lovable curmudgeon and his endearing, unstoppable sidekick in a wry comedy sure to have even red-eyed, sniffly-nosed readers rolling with laughter.
“Bear’s comic sad-sack histrionics . . . and the contrast with Mouse’s perky attempts at assistance deliver bear-sized portions of humor.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
