This is a light-hearted book directed at a younger audience (preschool - 2nd grade), about a bear who always seems to be in a bad mood, and a mouse who is determined to lighten him up. After the mouse sneaks into the bear's house several times, the bear eventually lets him stay and offers him tea. Once they sat down for tea, the duo became unlikely friends, and the bear decided that he liked being happy, and he enjoyed having company. Any young child would enjoy this sweet story.

This is a cute story with characters that children would like. A good story about appreciating someone and what we have. Young children would enjoy it for a read aloud.

Bear makes an unexpected friend when a persistent mouse will not leave him alone. Bear hates visitors, but in the end this mouse makes it's way into Bear's heart because it just keeps popping up in the most unexpected places. Bear didn't know how nice having someone to laugh at his jokes could be.

Sometimes we find a friend in the unlikeliest places. A teapot, a cupboard, a drawer, or maybe in a bath tub drain? A sweet story of a friendship between a grumpy old bear and a mouse that wouldn't quit.

An adorable story about a grumpy bear and a sweet mouse who keeps sneaking into Bear's house. Through his persistence, the bear finally breaks down and gives in to let him stay for tea. After he opened up his doors (and heart) he realizes that maybe he liked having visitors and friends after all. ( )

First words
No one ever came to Bear's house.
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.

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!
