About the Author:

LISA WHEELER has written many picture books, including her first collaboration with Ivan Bates, One Dark Night. She lives near Detroit, Michigan.

IVAN BATES
is the illustrator of Just You and Me and The Dark at the Top of the Stairs, both by Sam McBratney. He lives in England.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-Mouse and Mole share a "wee little" life in a "wee little" house, and decide to venture out one dark night through a swamp and wood. Fearful and nervous, the mole relies on the braver mouse to lead them along. Meanwhile, a hungry, impatient bear appears to be waiting for something before he can eat from the full table he has set in his lair. Mole and Mouse become lost and scared, while Bear decides to go out and find what he is waiting for, grumpily approaching the two friends and growling "YOU'RE LATE!" The little creatures are then happily relieved, and readers see that they are the anticipated guests of Bear, who has waited for their visit to share the feast he has prepared. Wheeler has written a menacingly suspenseful romp in scenes alternating between Mouse and Mole's venture and Bear's imposing anger. The wax pencil crayon and watercolor illustrations depict the lair scenes in browns and yellows and the outdoor nighttime vistas in blue greens, and the characters' expressions nicely reflect all the nervous tension. Children will probably not realize that Bates has provided a bit of foreshadowing in the original lair scene showing an abundantly set table. Deliciously scary.
