The Bear in My Bed, featuring Joyce Wan's sweet text and signature bold, graphic art, is a hilarious take on bedtime routines, sure to make sleepy little ones smile!

When a little boy goes into his room for bedtime, he finds out that his bed is already occupied—by a bear (who’snothis teddy bear)! The bear makes a mess with toys, splashes water around the bathtub, and eats books instead of reading them. Not to mention that he doesn’t know how to brush his teeth or wear pajamas! And how is anyone supposed to get any sleep with a bear taking up the whole bed?

Joyce Wanis the illustrator of the Peep and Egg books, and the author and illustrator ofThe Whale in My Swimming Pool and many popular board books includingYou Are My CupcakeandWe Belong Together. Joyce lives in Ridgewood, New Jersey, with her husband and daughter.

“Bold lines and clean, colorful shapes bring the exuberant naughtiness of bedtime struggles to life—a full-page illustration of a gleeful, underpants-as-headwear-bedecked bear, twirling in ribbons of toilet paper pretty much sums it up.” —Kirkus Reviews

“There’s appeal in Wan’s eye-catching illustrations . . . boy and bear are rendered in thick, chunky lines, and a mere twist of the mouth or curve of the eye easily conveys joy, exasperation, and sleepiness; white space and full spreads are used strategically to move the story along . . . Fans familiar with Wan’sThe Whale in My Swimming Pool may appreciate the kooky humor.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“As she did inThe Whale in My Swimming Pool, Wan plays on a child’s enjoyment of absurd situations to create a surprising and humorous story . . . Readers will love the bear’s silly antics, the boy’s mounting exasperation, and his resourcefulness. Wan’s flat, simple illustrations bring a soothing feeling to the bedtime story and perfectly capture the emotions of the boy and the bear.” —School Library Journal
