Bear has a no visitors sign on his door and one morning receives a visitor; a mouse. Bear told him to go away. He went back to his business and found mouse in the cupboard. Bear told him to leave. Bear then found mouse in the bread drawer. Bear yelled at him to leave. Bear then opened the fridge and there was mouse. Bear yelled at him to leave. Bear locked the door, boarded the window, sealed the chimney, plugged the bathtub. No sight of mouse in the cupboard, bread drawer or fridge. But there was mouse in the teakettle. Bear broke down in frustration. Mouse asked for a piece of cheese and a cup of tea and promised the bear that he would leave after that. Bear accepted. Bear and mouse enjoyed each others company and when it was time for mouse to leave Bear was devastated and tore up his no visitors sign and welcomed friends.

Bear does not want visitors! He has it posted on his door. But a persistent little mouse cannot take NO! for an answer. Finally Bear gives in, and realizes that he likes the company of Mouse! This is a sweet book about different personalities and how good it is to take the time to get to know someone. Very good for primary classes. ( )

I enjoyed this story very much. The storyline of a bear who has a mouse visitor who just won't leave would provide food for thought in class. I appreciated the end where Bear realizes what it means to have a friend. Again, this is a very good book for teaching.

I found this book to be very cute yet meaningful for children of younger ages developing their reading repertoire. The illustration throughout the text keeps readers actively engaged in what the author is trying to say. The author also does a great job of placing the audience in the shoes of Bear and allows you to feel his annoyance with the Mouse when he just wants to be left alone. At the end of the day, Becky Bonny ties in the concept that sometimes having company isn't always such a bad thing perfectly. ( )

Bear cleared his throat. The mouse looked most attentive. No one had ever been most attentive to Bear. "The fire is nice," Bear announced. "Lovely," said the mouse. No one had ever said Bear's fires were lovely.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763628077, Hardcover)

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!
