Bear Wants More

Karma Wilson. Margaret K. McElderry Books, $16.95 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-689-84509-3

Several books follow the footsteps of earlier titles. The ursine hero from the best-selling Bear Snores On emerges from hibernation in Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, illus. by Jane Chapman. The ""more"" he wants is food, of course: ""When springtime comes,/ in his warm winter den/ a bear wakes up/ very hungry and thin!"" His friends are happy to indulge him, but when he heads home, stuffed, he's in for a surprise.
