This is a book that warms the cold cockles of even the grumpiest heart. People who cringe at the sight of Bambi and shudder at baby chicks will be instantly charmed by Becker and Denton’s tale of a grump that learns that sometimes the right visitor is worth the vexation that comes with giving up your privacy.

There is a truth to this tale, sometimes friends push their way into your life, and it can only take one to make you open yourself up.

My little boy loves this book. It provides lots of opportunity for expressive reading with different voices and emotions. Wonderful pictures that capture the attention of a small person!

This is a lovely story about discovering that something you THOUGHT you didn't like, you DO! ;)

Bear’s pretty good at keeping people away. No one ever visits him, and just in case one does he has a big sign in front that reads, “NO visitors allowed”. Just in case. Everything is fine and dandy until one day a mouse “small and gray and bright-eyed” knocks on the door. Bear says in no uncertain terms that he is not keen on visitors. The mouse seems to understand, but when Bear attempts to get out a bowl for himself, there sits the mouse asking for a spot of tea. After throwing out the unwanted guest Bear tries to open his bread drawer next, and there again is the mouse! To Bear’s increasing frustration the mouse is absolutely everywhere, and no amount of stoppering or locking keeps him away. At last, Bear consents to having a bit of tea with the miniscule visitor and soon discovers that the mouse is attentive, easily impressed, and laughs at Bear’s jokes. And when it is time for the mouse to go, Bear finds himself unceremoniously ripping down the “NO visitors allowed” sign. After all, he says, that is a sign for salesmen. Not for friends.
