It seems like Bear can sleep through anything. As a succession of animals enter his cave to escape the fierce storm, he continues to snore. Mouse makes a nice warm fire, Hare cooks popcorn and Badger brings treats...They are having a great time. But when Bear wakes up and realises he's missed out on the fun, his visitors fear the worst. Can Bear be persuaded to join the party? This read-aloud rhyming story has fun, suspense and a happy ending - with Jane Chapman's beautiful, captivating illustrations and Karma Wilson's absorbing, lyrical words perfectly depicting the companionship of the warm, cosy cave and the contrast with the wild storm outside.

  • Delightful illustrations of a snowy party in the bear's cave. When the bear wakes up, it's time to party on!

  • I think Karma Wilson and this Bear series are wonderful. Awesome read aloud, good rhyme scheme. Bear sleeps and sleeps while his friends gather in his den and have a party.

  • I love this book! I've read it many, many times and still am not tired of it. From an early age my babies enjoyed the sound of the text, and now they also appreciate the pictures, and enjoy the story to it.

  • Small critters gather for a winter party in Bear's den. Bear sleeps like through it all.... until. This book has grown on me to the point that I love it, and love reading it. The text is brilliant. It's cute, rhythmic and rhymes and the tone is flexible. You can make it a happy book through and through, or you can make Bear scary in his "deep dark lair" and build some suspense. Illustrations are cute too, and I especially love one picture with the animals dancing in the firelight so that all we see are their black silhouettes and a very large sleeping brown bear in color. Currently my two-year-old absolutely loves it. My almost-four-year-old enjoys it, but not as much as she used to.
