Leave that Bear Alone!

Bear Snores On

Karma Wilson burst on the picture book scene with this thunderously successful poetic effort.  Paired to Jane Chapman’s stellar illustrations, this bear was bound for classic status.  Unfortunately, Wilson’s publisher decided that an endless slew of weak sequels – lacking the creative spark of her first brain child – were just what the doctor ordered.  But don’t let publisher greed deter you.  This is masterful writing.

BTW: Chapman’s moody evening winter snowstorm illustrations are almost enough to land this book in my blog all by themselves.
