A Birthday for Bear: Candlewick Sparks (Candlewick Sparks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Can a relentlessly cheery Mouse wear down a party-pooping Bear? The unlikely pair are back in a droll, utterly charming tale that early readers will celebrate.

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. The author and illustrator who created the best-selling picture book A VISITOR FOR BEAR return with another comedy about the curmudgeonly Bear and his eager friend Mouse, this time in an early-reader format.

Synopsis:

The lovable, unlikely pair from the "New York Times" bestseller "A Visitor for Bear" is back with another comedy. Can relentlessly cheery Mouse wear down a party-pooping Bear, who doesn't like birthdays? Full color.
