A Birthday for Bear

By Bonny Becker
Illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton

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 doesn’t 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.

  • Another funny story about the hilariously mismatched and New York Times best-selling pair ---grumpy, gruff Bear and the irrepressibly cheerful Mouse.
  • The slapstick humor and verbal back-and-forth between the two characters are pitch perfect for emergent readers.
  • Opens up a new world for these instantly beloved characters in the genre of easy-to-read.
