About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


It is bedtime for the Bear family, and Mother Bear climbs into the big bed first, with all her six children tumbling in around her. One by one they `yawn a BIG yawn', and Mother Bear tells each of them a special bedtime story to take them off to dreamland. She must know all her children very well, for her stories reflect their individual interests: Baxter sails off in a pirate ship; Bella becomes a trapeze artist; Lucy hunts tigers in the jungle; and Tosca dreams of being a fairytale queen. Greedy Ali (who took his supper to bed with him) is sent off `dreaming of scrumptiousness all through the night', while Baby Bear, last of all, cuddles up under his mother's chin with a lullaby; `and they all fell faaaast asleep in their soft feather bed. And all of them slept until spring'. The gentle, repetitive text should prove suitably soporific for young human sleepyheads, while Kerry Argent's warm, amusing illustrations highlight the personalities of each little bear, from Ali with his bowl of cornflakes to the twins and their floppy toy elephant who takes the final bow. Picture-book format. Ages two to four. Margaret Dunkle is a children's author, bookseller and reviewer. C. 1999 Thorpe-Bowker and contributors
