A Birthday for Bear (Candlewick Sparks)


A Birthday for Bear (Candlewick Sparks) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrate curmudgeonly Bear and the irrepressible Mouse in this laugh-out-loud companion to the best-selling A Visitor for Bear, now in picture-book format.

Bear does not like birthdays. He doesnt like parties or balloons, cards or candles. In fact, Bear does not like anything to do with birthdays at all. He would much rather spend his birthday alone cleaning his house, but Mouse, small and gray and bright-eyed, has other ideas. With a perfectly paced story by Bonny Becker paired with Kady MacDonald Dentons slapstick visual comedy, A Birthday for Bear — previously published as a first reader — welcomes young listeners to the party in a new picture-book format, with all new artwork, ideal for sharing.

About the Author

Bonny Becker is the author of all the Bear and Mouse books as well as a number of other award-winning picture books and middle-grade novels. She lives in Seattle.

Kady MacDonald Denton is the illustrator of the Bear and Mouse stories as well as Tim Wadhams The Queen of France and Claire Masurels Two Homes. She lives in Ontario, Canada.
