Synopsis

Don't Wake Mr Bear! by Jill Newton

It is autumn and as many forest animals are settling down to hibernate, others take up their instruments to play a special winter lullaby. The forest orchestra is organised by the Dormouse, who heads off to sleep, reminding the others that under no circumstances must they wake Mr Bear. At first all is quiet but then, suddenly, a group of merry-making wolves crash into the forest. They are a lively bunch, and don't care about not waking Mr Bear - they just want to party! Their joie de vivre is infectious and it's not long before the forest orchestra have swapped their flutes and harps for guitars and speakers. It's all tremendous fun until a dark, bear-shaped shadow looms over the forest...A funny story that also teaches the importance of the rhythms of nature.

Reviews

The story is told with a rhythm that will appeal to little ones, and the artwork is so thickly painted that it seems to have texture. . . . A good story hour choice. -- Booklist on Gordon in Charge

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11
