A huggable picture-book debut about a bear who doesn’t quite fit—perfect for fans of Karma Wilson’s Bear Snores On and Philip C. Snead & Erin Stead’s Bear Has a Story to Tell.
When Bear wakes up one spring, he goes in search of a new home. And he thinks he’s found the perfect place. Unfortunately, things are a bit . . . snug.

Can five little ducks find room for one big bear in their home—and in their hearts? Ciara Gavin’s luminous picture-book debut explores the unconditional love of families in all their colors, shapes, and sizes.
Ciara Gavin graduated from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. Her work appears in the National Museum of Decorative Arts and History there, and has been exhibited at galleries throughout Ireland. She lives in Dublin with her son.

"...[E]ndearing...the sweetly compact sentences move the story along at a rhythmic, readaloud-perfect pacing...Fans of Becker’s Bear and Mouse books will find a new ursine friend (with bonus ducklings!) here."
