Wide awake

Another animal with a big personality is Bear, the sleepy-eyed hero of a best-selling series of books by Karma Wilson, including Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More. Her hibernating fellow has a new challenge in Bear Stays Up for Christmas. His good friends Mouse, Hare, Badger, Raven, Mole, Wren and Gopher give him an ultimatum: "We won't let you sleep through Christmas this year."

The group keeps him busy picking out and decorating a tree, hanging stockings and wrapping. In the end, only Bear manages to stay up—the rest are too exhausted. Bear, however, is so busy wrapping presents that he doesn't see Santa arrive.

Jane Chapman's illustrations are a delight; her Bear a huge, cuddly hero. All his friends radiate charm and personality, and Wilson's simple yet gently compelling text is the perfect accompaniment. Bear Stays Up for Christmas is bound to be a bedtime favorite for young readers.

Alice Cary writes from Groton, Massachusetts.
