Synopsis

Don't Wake Mr Bear! by Jill Newton

A funny story about what happens when the seasons get mixed up - with a brilliant twist. It is autumn and as many forest animals are settling down to hibernate, others take up their instruments to play a special winter lullaby. Orchestrating it all is Dormouse, reminding the others that under no circumstances must they wake Mr Bear. At first all is quiet until a group of merry-making wolves crash into the forest making an epic song and dance. It's all tremendous fun until a dark, bear-shaped shadow looms over the forest ...A lively and musical story about the seasons, nature and having a good time. Jill Newton's noisy and anarchic tale is one of the finest autumn stories for children you're likely to come across. When those long nights begin to draw in and the leaves start to turn, this bedtime story uncovers the magic of the changing seasons.

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
