Gina Wilson's endearing story and Paul Howard's warmly glowing illustrations are a snug and cozy treat for any child who has ever loved a bear.

Grandma shares her cottage with bears named Arthur, Aggie, Tumtum, and Floss, and tonight Nat is going to meet them for the first time. He's a little nervous, of course. "Are they fierce?" he asks Grandma. "Not when I'm around," she replies. And sure enough, Nat discovers that Grandma's bears are full of surprises! Just like him, they love having someone around to play with, bring treats, help with baths, read a story, and best of all, cuddle up for a good night's sleep.
