Annotation:
Adored by millions, best known for KITTEN'S FIRST FULL MOON and his Lily picture book series, Kevin Henkes visits the four seasons with this charming story about Old Bear. With art reminiscent of A GOOD DAY, this picture book follows the dreams of a bear who has just lay down to hibernate for winter. Old Bear slumbers on and goes through summer, fall, winter, and spring as if he is a cub all over again. With a simple text and beautiful illustrations, this is yet another winner from Henkes.
Author Bio
Kevin Henkes
Author and illustrator Kevin Henkes had his first book, entitled ALL ALONE, published in 1981 when he was only 19 years old. Since then, he has become an enormously popular author of picture books and novels for middle-grade readers, notably the Newbery Honor Book OLIVE'S OCEAN. Many of Henkes's picture books, such as JULIUS THE BABY OF THE WORLD and LILY'S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE, feature the character Lily--a feisty white mouse. In 2005, he was awarded the prestigious Caldecott Medal for his charming, duotoned KITTEN'S FIRST FULL MOON. In 2006, he received the Sterling North Legacy Award for Excellence in Children's Literature.

Praise

"Henkes's surefooted art guides readers through time...Lyrically a describing the young-at-heart, Henkes plays an artist's game of hot and cold watercolor hues." 7/7/08

"As he did in KITTEN'S FIRST FULL MOON, Henkes has created a thoroughly delightful character filled with curiosity and sweetness and placed him in a simple tale that unfolds with a natural, rhythmical pace." 9/1/2008

"Celebrating the yearly surprise of changing seasons, Henkes keep his text and art classically and timelessly simple." 11/1/08

"Boy or bear, young or old, seeking or dreaming, Henkes's characters are memorable for their robust joyfulness, authenticity and hard-won wisdom." - Sarah Ellis 12/21/2008
