Absolutely loved it! Such a cute story with a catchy rhyme! The ending is something of a "cliffhanger" and could definitely lead to a sequel!

A funny story about a mouse who is upset that a bear is sitting on his chair! He tries different tactics to get the bear off his chair, but the bear won't budge. The rhymes and the illustrations make this a great read aloud book for storytime.

A funny rhyming story about a mouse who is mad that a careless bear is sitting on HIS chair! The mouse describes his frustration as he attempts to lure the bear off of his chair.
I have found this book to be great with all ages, and is well liked during storytimes.

The fun rhyme and rhythm of this cute book makes it a great choice for read aloud storytime. Older preschoolers will love the humorous twist at the end.

All mouse wants to do is sit down in his chair, but there's a bear in it! And he won't move. Mouse tries everything until he finally gives up. He decides to crawl into bed instead - bear's bed!

The start of this tale is cute. But at the end there was no resolution. Just anger and what seems to be payback by the mouse sleeping on the bears bed!

When you read a book that rhymes to a mixed group of adults and children, you want the rhyme to be GOOD. This book is a great example of a worthwhile rhyming book.
