“The illustrator tucks tiny images of grimacing burgers, fire-breathing flying pigs, and like comically rendered nightmares into peaceful moonlit scenes of a big, friendly looking bear padding through residential neighborhoods in search of snacks.”—starred, Booklist

Kirkus Reviews

“Whimsical, light, and soothing, like a pretty good dream that Night Bear would surely never eat.”—Kirkus Reviews
