A lyrical bedtime tale of a little boy and his bear is an ode to the magic of dreams — and the transformative power of the imagination.
As a little boy falls peacefully into sleep and starts to dream, his teddy bear grows and growls and pops his button nose to turn into a real grizzly bear. And amazingly, the boy becomes a grizzly bear, too — following his friend to the nighttime forest to hunt and prowl, feast and fish until the morning sun returns. David Elliott's spare, poetic text and Max Grafe's luminous illustrations tell a transfixing bedtime story, gently carrying sleepy listeners into dreamland.
