About the Author:

MEM FOX is the beloved author of Koala Lou, Time for Bed, Possum Magic, and The Magic Hat, as well as many other popular books for children. She lives in Adelaide, South Australia.

KERRY ARGENT has illustrated many picture books, including Mem Fox's Wombat Divine and Dinnertime! by Sue Williams. She lives in Adelaide, South Australia.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-A cleverly written bedtime book with very distinct characters, each with its own hibernation-time rhyme. Mother Bear tucks in her six cubs, sending them off on dreamy adventures. Baxter dreams of pirates, Bella of the circus, Winifred of the jungle, Tosca of kingdoms, Ali of divine foods, and Baby Bear of moonbeams. "And all of them slept until spring." The rhymes are well written, and the charming pictures, done in gouache, watercolor, and colored pencil, are full of funny details. When the cubs are in bed waiting to drift off, the room is draped in a yellow hue lit by candle. Dream scenes show distant lands with the youngsters sleeping peacefully in the corners. On the penultimate page, the bears are lined up across the bed in hats or headdresses that represent their particular dreams. A fuzzy, stuffed blue elephant that plays and rests with the bears throughout the book blows out the candle on the final page. A fanciful story that's sure to be popular.
