A repeating story (like The Old Woman Who Swallowed the Fly) about a little mouse trying to scare a bear with all sorts of different animals. In the end, it's the mouse who's the one that gets to the bear! Asher (5 years old) reads this story aloud to Dex (2 years old). Very cute.

Fun, silly illustrations

a bear does not care if there is a moose on the loose nor a bad-tempered get the drift. A fun culmultive tale for storytime, especially winter themed ones.
