Can't you sleep, Little Bear? ISBN: 9780744513165
Published by Walker, 1990
Little Bear is afraid of the dark in the back of the cave, so Big Bear brings him a tiny lantern - and then a medium size lantern - and then a huge lantern - but to no avail. It is really all the dark outside that Little Bear is frightened of. Big Bear takes Little Bear out, and they look at the 'lantern' of the moon and stars together, whereupon Little Bear falls asleep. A beautiful and charming story, in which it gradually dawns on the reader that Big and Little Bear are linked with the constellations. Winner of the Library Association's Kate Greenaway Medal and other awards. Outstanding.
