Acclaimed author Karma Wilson tells a festive story about friendship and helping others when they are sad in this Children's Book-of-the-Month Club Featured Selection. Bear is snuggled in his cave for the winter. He sleeps all day and all night. The cold wind can't even wake him up. He just snores on. Then, one day, something unexpected happens, and he is woken up. John McDonough's playful narration helps listeners become involved in these woodland creatures' activities.

"As Bear hibernates through the winter, mouse and an ever increasing group of his friends take advantage of the comforts in Bear's cave. Bear is oblivious to the foods being assembled, roasted, and feasted upon within a paw's reach. Bear snores on--until the seasonings for a stew change all that. A few moments of growling give way to midwinter merriment. John McDonough brings distinction to each of the den's occupants. He narrates a great gruff bear, a fine squeaky mouse, and a muttering mole, emphasizing the rhyme and using pauses to heighten the drama. His narration is as pleasurable as the tale. A.R.
