Ursel Scheffler was born in Nuremberg, Germany. She studied modern languages and ethnology, and after her three children were born she began to write secretly at night. Her first picture book was published in 1970, and she has now written more than seventy books for young readers. She lives with her husband in Hamburg.
Ulises Wensel was born in Madrid. He has illustrated more than eighty picture books, some of them published in more than twenty countries. His illustrations have won many awards, but he believes his most satisfying award comes when his artwork touches young readers personally, helping them to better understand themselves. He and his wife Paloma, live outside Madrid.
Disgruntled Little Bear, frustrated by the continued usurpation of his parents' attention, trades Sister Bear for a pail of fish in this utterly honest tale of sibling relationships. Scheffler (Grandpa's Amazing Computer, 1997, etc.) captures the roiling emotions that continue to erupt as a toddler grapples with the transition from only child to older sibling. Alternately missing the glory days of babyhood and reveling in his newfound status--he is gleeful at the thought of eating as much honey as he wants--Little Bear blames his sister for the state of his conflicting desires. When Mama and Papa entrust Sister Bear to Little Bear for the day, he reluctantly takes Sister Bear along on his fishing expedition with friend Willy, leading to the infamous trade. However, the discovery that Little Sister is missing arouses Little Bear's protective instincts as he braves the dark forest in search of her. Wensell's illustrations, softly drawn and delicately hued, will be too sweet for some tastes, but perfectly match this sympathetic treatment of a challenging time in a young child's development.
