Bear Wants More

By Karma Wilson

Illustrated by Jane Chapman

Simon and Schuster 2003

When Bear wakes up after his Winter snooze, heʼs VERY HUNGRY! Can anything fill him up?

The pictures are green and lush throughout this book, so thereʼs plenty of food for Bear to eat…he just has to follow his nose. I was inspired by Winnie-the-Pooh because he gets stuck in a doorway too. Thereʼs a picture where you can see Bearʼs bottom outside, and his head inside. Poor Bear, how undignified!
