Candlewick Press A Visitor for Bear
Cheery persistence wears down a curmudgeonly bear in a wry comedy of manners that ends in a most unlikely friendship. 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 when Bear goes to the cupboard to get a bowl, there is the mouse ? small and gray and bright-eyed. In this slapstick tale that begs to be read aloud, all Bear wants is to eat his breakfast in peace, but the mouse ? who keeps popping up in the most unexpected places ? just won?t go away!

With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to m...ake a mark - and follow where it takes us. Her teacher smiled. Just make a mark and see where it takes you. Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can?t draw - she?s no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. There! she says. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti?s journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds?s delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.
