When Addis Berner Bear arrives in the city, it’s so big and confusing, and so loud and fast, that he forgets why he has come. With help from some – and hindrance from others – Addis Berner Bear must rediscover why he’s there and what he’s supposed to do. His great realization – he’s a trumpet player – gives true meaning to his life and brings pleasure and joy to others.
This artfully illustrated, pitch-perfect tale about belonging and staying true to one’s personal creative mission, whatever it may be, will uplift any reader who has ever felt, like Addis, a bit lost in this big, loud, fast, and confusing world.
