When the balloon lands at the start of a colorful parade, the crowd embraces Bear—so very lifelike!—turning him into an instant celebrity. From talk-show hosts to helicopter pilots, everyone wants to meet the funny man in the bear costume. But no one understands poor Bear! With each new sight and smell, friendly face, and excited crowd, Bear is drawn further from his home and into an adventure he will never forget.
Combining elegant writing with gorgeous illustrations, this lively and endearing story from award-winning author and illustrator Brian Wildsmith will keep readers enthralled to the final page.
