A Visitor for Bear has the feel of a classic, and it's so cozy no parent could object to reading it aloud every night. —The New York Times Book Review (starred review)
Bear is quite sure he doesn't like visitors. He even has a sign. So when a mouse taps on his door one day, Bear tells him to leave. But the mouse—who keeps popping up in the most unexpected places—just won't go away. Cheery persistence wears down the curmudgeonly Bear in a wry comedy of manners that ends in a most unlikely friendship.
