Disliked the beginning, loved the end! It's the usual story of a curmudgeon's armor being worn away by a persistent and charming soon-to-be friend. However, at first, I just felt the mouse was annoying! Who was he to keep ignoring bear's requests to be left alone just because he (mouse) wanted some food and a play to stay? After all, some creatures really do just want some solitude! By the end, it is clear that bear was unhappy in his solitude and we may hope/insinuate that mouse knew this and had altruistic motives all along. Even so, I cannot quite give this one the glowing reviews so many others have, and it's a NY Times Bestseller. Maybe I am just too much of a curmudgeon myself! ;-/
