Synopsis

One dark and stormy night, Mrs Bear is putting Sam to bed. "Ready now, Sam?" she asks. "Oh no," says Sam. "I'm waiting." So Mrs Bear reads Sam his favourite book. But he still isn't ready. So Mrs Bear tucks the red blanket around Sam and makes him a nest. But he still isn't ready. And he's not even ready after a glass of warm milk. What can Sam be waiting for? His kiss goodnight of course! This cosy, loving story builds up to a delightful climax that every child will love anticipating and re-enacting with their own parent. Anita Jeram's striking new art style emanates warmth and light, and creates the perfect bedtime ambience for parents and children to share.

The hulking Mrs. Bear is a literal bulwark of maternal devotion, while Sam's roly-poly poses comically communicate his coy devotion.
