Ravenous is the word to describe Bear as he awakes from his winter hibernation. Neither the strawberries nor the clover can satiate his appetite. By the time Bear arrives back at his den for a wake-up surprise party, he has a bit of difficulty attending the event. (Think of Pooh at Rabbit’s house.) Karma Wilson brings personality to her characters in just the way she conceived them. The squeaks of pleasure, the roars of frustration, and the eager anticipation of pleasing a friend are genuine and contagious. She paces herself so that both the story and illustrations can be enjoyed. Springtime music completes the recording. Young listeners will want MORE themselves.
