A bed for bear by Clive McFarland (2014)

All Bernard wants to do is find the perfect place to hibernate away from his rabble-filled bear cave. Off he wanders to find a delightfully comfortable alternative.

Sadly, a lilypond, nest and burrow, while wonderful for frogs, birds and rabbits, prove on the unsuitable side for Bernard. Increasingly disheveled and exhausted, he suffers the ignominy of being ejected from a badger sett. Luckily, and in the words of Dorothy, it turns out, “There’s no place like home.”IMG_1205

I love that Bernard starts off so dapper with his yellow scarf and fluffy pillow, but by the end of his adventure he’s accoutrements-less and covered in dirt and leaves.

This is a lovely book with which I entertained a group of small people. My niece’s friend announced partway through, “This is just like Goldilocks.” Kids’ brains are awesome!
