Review

One day in the forest, a young bear stumbles upon something he has never seen before. As time passes, he teaches himself how to play the strange instrument - and, eventually, the beautiful sounds are heard by a father and son who are picnicking in the woods.

The bear's piano playing makes him a huge star, but he misses the friends and family he has left behind. Could it be that money and celebrity are not everything?

This is a moving tale of exploration and belonging from an exciting debut author-illustrator, boasting some beautiful artwork. It's a striking picture book to enjoy over and over again.
