The Lovereading4Kids commentPeaceful Bartholomew Bear leads a quiet life watching the sun go down and contemplating the calm around him. But then the Bug turns up. The Bug has no time for contemplation. A creature in a hurry, he thirsts for the bright lights and leads Bear away from the peaceful hills to the vibrant city. Here Bear and Bug party under the city lights happy with life, happy with each otherâ€™s company. As dawn breaks, the fast living Bug disappears â€“ gone forever â€“ and Bartholomew returns home to renew his peaceful life but now able to treasure other happy memories too. A life-affirming story gloriously illustrated in Neal Laytonâ€™s irresistible, scratchy style. (3+)
