PreS-Gr 2-In this appealing follow-up to Bear Snores On (S & S, 2002), it is spring, Bear is awake, and he is hungry. Several of his animal friends take him to places where he can get food, "But the bear wants more!" Finally, he heads home, where others have organized a party for him, but he has eaten so much that he gets stuck in his own doorway. After being pried out, he eats more and falls asleep, but now "his friends want more!" The rollicking, rhyming text flows smoothly, and the repeated refrain will have youngsters chiming right in. The acrylic illustrations are brightly colored, and the creatures, although they are sweetly appealing and use tools, look distinctly like wild animals; the details are wonderful. The layout alternates between full-bleed spreads and single-page pictures, some of which are also full bleed, while others are in a circle. This format works well to move the story along, and encourages page turns. This simple, gentle story, with its short text, large graphics, and reference to hibernation, will work well in storytimes for young preschoolers, and will fill teachers' demands for seasonal tales.-Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

Several books follow the footsteps of earlier titles. The ursine hero from the best-selling Bear Snores On emerges from hibernation in Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, illus. by Jane Chapman. The "more" he wants is food, of course: "When springtime comes,/ in his warm winter den/ a bear wakes up/ very hungry and thin!" His friends are happy to indulge him, but when he heads home, stuffed, he's in for a surprise.
