Norton and the Borrowing Bear

We rated this book:


Norton lives by himself at number forty-two. People in the neighborhood are far too busy to make friends, so when Bear moves into number forty-four, Norton is quite happy to have a new neighbor. He invites Bear to dinner. They have a fine evening together, and when Bear leaves, he says it’s cold and he would like to borrow Norton’s favorite fuzzy slippers. The next day, Bear shows up and borrows Norton’s teapot and teacup just as Norton is preparing to use them. Norton puts on his sweater to feel better, and Bear shows up to borrow that. And on and on until Norton just can’t take it anymore. But what can he do and how will it affect his new-found friendship?
