A Birthday for Bear

By Bonny Becker
Illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton

Celebrate curmudgeonly Bear and the irrepressible Mouse in this laugh-out-loud companion to the much-loved A Visitor for Bear, A Bedtime for Bear and The Sniffles for Bear.

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 grey and bright-eyed, has other ideas. With a perfectly paced story by Bonny Becker paired with Kady MacDonald Denton’s slapstick visual comedy, A Birthday for Bear welcomes young listeners to the party in a new Bear and Mouse picture book ideal for sharing.

  • Another laugh-out-loud funny picture book starring the hilariously mismatched friends Bear and Mouse.
  • A witty tale of a reluctant birthday celebrant with all the slapstick humour and repartee that readers of Bear and Mouse's escapades have come to expect.
  • The perfect birthday gift for any two-to-six-year-old - or even a grumpy (like Bear!) grown-up!
