A Kiss for Little Bear Author:Else Holmelund Minarik, Maurice Sendak (Illustrator) Grandmother likes Little Bear's picture so much she sends him a thank-you kiss. "Will you take it to him, Hen?" she says. Hen passes the kiss to Frog who passes it to Cat who passes it to Little Skunk until Hen decides there is too much kissing -- and finally gives the kiss to Little Bear.
"A new story about Little Bear always is a cause for cheers. No one-young or old-can resist this charming, chubby little fellow who spreads happiness just by being himself." WASHINGTON, D.C. POST TIMES-HERALD
"Oh, what a nice book! Beguiling as ever, Little Bear draws a picture of a Wild Thing and sends it, via Hen, to Grandmother. Sendak's illustrations are as always polished and delightful." SATURDAY REVIEW
