In this third book in Clara Vulliamy's series for youngsters up to 6, following The Bear with Sticky Paws and The Bear with Sticky Paws Goes to School, our stubborn heroine Lily doesn't want to have anything to do with going to bed: "I won't lie down, I won't shut my eyes, I want to play now!" Then Lily's irrepressible friend, the little white bear with sticky paws, arrives at the door. "Party time!" he cries, and he whisks Lily and her bed around the world for a sweet-fueled celebration. And strangely enough, Lily becomes sleepier and sleepier.
"It's only after a small white bear shows up at the door with a suitcase and flies her off to an island party with grass skirts and sticky treats that Lily is worn out enough to admit defeat to sleep.... The vibrant pastel drawings illustrate the child's imaginings of smiling animal friends and island parties."—School Library Journal
