The hour was late and Mr Bear was tired. But he could not sleep - however he tried and wherever he tried.
SNORE, SNORE went Mrs Bear.
TICK-TOCK, TICK-TOCK went the clock.
Would he never get to sleep?
The familiar noises, repetition and beautiful illustrations have made this delightful story a favourite with children and adults everywhere for 35 years. Poor Mr Bear! His disturbed night's sleep never fails to raise a smile.
