Product Description

Review

The body language of the characters conveys a huge emotional range. Whether readers are fans of this homey pair or new to the dynamic duo's doings, they will delight in the childlike repartee and comfortable friendship.--School Library JournalBear's comic sad-sack histrionics, couched in his formal phraseology, and the contrast with Mouse's perky attempts at assistance deliver bear-sized portions of humor. Kids won't have to be sniffly themselves to appreciate the sickroom drama, but it could also lighten the burden of those sentenced to whining and high Kleenex use.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

The relentlessly cheery Mouse pushes a cold-suffering Bear to new heights of melodrama in a hilarious new adventure starring the unlikely pair.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By K. J. Noyes TOP 100 REVIEWER on 5 May 2014
Format: Paperback
My favourite is still the original 'A Visitor for Bear', which had a more repetitive and perfect formula which worked brilliantly.

But this still gets 4.5 stars from me. Bear (grumpy but at heart just wanting sympathy and a friend) is unwell. Small, bright-eyed Mouse comes round to cheer him up and help him on the road to recovery. But does he not realise that stories, songs and soup just aren't enough when Bear is so sick?! He even starts to make his will (a concept over my son's head).

Bear is a little over the top in this book, but Mouse is adorable as he unfailingly tries to help his sick friend. But when the tables turn, the ending is very sweet and raises a smile all round.

Lovely drawings. Lovely, familiar characters in another great entry in the series.

Definitely one of the best modern series of books I've come across, Well illustrated and interesting stories. Grandchildren (2 and 4) love it and I confess even I wanted to know what happened next. Start with "Birthday for Bear" - it sets the scene.

I love reading these, the kids love hearing them. Mouse is a wee star. What more do you want? Surprised they aren't way more popular!

"That wasn't very good." 14 Feb. 2013
By Denise Marie Fezza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this because my four year old son and I love A Visitor for Bear. I agree with the other reviewer that said diminishing returns with the sequels and another reviewer that it didn't really flow. I wasn't keen on explaining what a last will is to my four year old - he knows all about death, we lost a pet recently and a good friend's grandmother and I wasn't expecting to dive back into the topic because the discussion lasts for days. When we finally finished the book, my son announced, "That wasn't very good."

Not age appropriate for young children 14 May 2013
By Ch3w33 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I loved "A Visitor for Bear" and was very disappointed with this book. Bear is melodramatic and sick, and keeps talking about how he thinks he is dying. I am scratching my head wondering what the authors were thinking. Unless you want to explain to your child what a "will" is, or why Bear is saying goodbye to Mouse when he's not going anywhere, then I would avoid this one.

Maintains the charm and quality of the first, may even be better 14 Nov. 2012
By Basil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I very much liked "A Visitor for Bear" and the other books in this series. Bear and mouse are both delightful and lovable characters, illustrated in a warm welcoming style that displays a broad range of emotions with grace and humor.

This book appeals to children without pandering and is humorous for both children and adults. I do not think that I will mind reading it again and again. It is that rare that a series is able to maintain to the same high level that was found with first, especially when such heights were reached with the first volume. Becker has, however, managed to keep this series fresh and lively. This particular book has the added quality that the subject matter makes it a wonderful read for a child who is not feeling well.

Parents an children will likely enjoy reading this book again and again.

Death and a will...in a children's book? 2 Mar. 2014
By CleverPenName - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sorry I just don't understand explaining dying and having a will to a preschooler. Otherwise it's fine, not a very interesting story and dull ending. I do like the lesson of how the mouse tries to help in multiple ways. Ultimately I glued a few pages together and did some cutting and pasting to get rid of the death part.

Miserable book 28 Feb. 2013
By M. B. Hawkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"A Visitor for Bear" was wonderful; this book is not. What parent in their right mind wants to read about death and wills to their preschooler? The author has clearly run out of ideas for these characters and needs to move on. Avoid!

A much better choice is "Pigs Make Me Sneeze" by Mo Willems.
