Publication Date: August 1, 2003



Bear is big and bear is brown and bear lives all alone. But then one day someone comes along who gives him a few tips about the ups and downs of having a friend.
With warmth and a gentle wit, David McPhail brings together two unlikely chums (along with some oatmeal, a windup car, and two very comfy slippers).
