What's wrong with Mr. Bear's car? Lift the flaps and find out! Fresh retro art tunes up a fun, interactive book that kids will be eager to take for a spin.

Welcome to Mr. Bear's garage! His car has broken down, so it's a lucky thing he's a mechanic. But where did all his helpers go? In the trunk? Behind the door? And where is that strange noise coming from? Nostalgically illustrated and lovingly crafted, each spread of this delightful book features nested flaps and foldouts revealing missing characters, special tools, and a few unexpected mechanical secrets. So roll up your sleeves, check under the hood, and get ready for a humorous, hands-on adventure from the mechanic's shop to the road and back again.
