Bear Wants More

Novel for kids. Ages 4-8

PreS-Gr. 2. What happens after a bear breaks the fast of hibernation? In this rhyming follow-up to Bear Snores On (2002), Bear emerges as a lean, mean, eating machine. His animal friends help him find food, and he munches his way through the forest. As his grub crawl proceeds, both the words of the refrain ("But the bear wants more!") and Bear himself increase in size. Other friends busily plan a party for Bear back at his lair. Later all the friends must work together to pry the overfed, very stuck Bear from the entrance to his den. The story is fun and funny, but it takes a backseat to the illustrations. Chapman's acrylic paintings have a freshly washed look that conveys the newness of spring, and they are layered with delightful comic touches--Bear's increasing girth, his friends' bemused expressions, and the flower crown he wears at his picnic, after which he falls asleep. Now Bear is "full, full, full . . . but . . . his friends want more." An appealing romp about springtime and friendship.
