The Bear With Sticky Paws Won't Go to Bed

Foreword Review — Mar / Apr 2010

Lily is really very busy, and she’s not interested in going to bed. She tells her mother, “I want to play NOW!” Just then the doorbell rings, and here is a small white bear who says the same thing. It’s party time! He takes Lily on an adventure in a flying bed, over the town and around the world to a party island where the festivities continue. Except that Lily starts to get sleepy and finally says, “NO MORE! It’s my bedtime.”

Vulliamy’s illustrations capture a bright-eyed Lily, a tropical island party, and a wild little dancing bear. Lily and the bear have been together before in The Bear with Sticky Paws and The Bear with Sticky Paws Goes to School.
