Summary
What happens when a bear comes knocking at your door--and won't go away?

" And I said, ' Go home, bear. '
And that was that.
But the bear came back. "

Knock, knock. Who's there? A BEAR! A furry, friendly PERSISTENT bear. And no matter how many times a particular little boy tries to tell him that bears don't belong in houses, he keeps coming back--until, one day, he doesn't. Only then does the boy realize how much he cares about the bear . . . and misses him. Can he find his friend again? A funny, surprising story about two unexpected pals.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A bear knocks on the door of a little boy's house and is promptly told to go home, because bears do not belong in houses. However, the persistent bear keeps showing up in the boy's home, messing with his bedtime, reading, art making, and even his bath! The frustrated boy screams, GO HOME, BEAR! After this, the bear does not return. Though initially delighted by the bear's absence, the boy soon misses the good-natured interrupter. He declares his loneliness unbearable and organizes a neighborhood search. Eventually, the boy gives up, and this is the heart of Sauer's book the regret at not appreciating a loyal companion is palpable in the boy's isolation as well as distant views of the bear standing beneath an umbrella in the rain. The bear, of course, does return, and is welcomed. There is plenty of humor in the details of the colorful, fine-lined art, but this is largely a poignant story, one that could add a nice variety of flavor to storytime. The book could also serve to jump-start conversations about drawing boundaries with friends.--Young, Michelle Copyright 2018 Booklist"
