A very happy bear hears the sounds of the city from his quiet home by the sea and decides to find out what city life is like. Buying the ticket and traveling on the train is all very exciting. And so is the city But after a while, the bear finds the city a little too noisy and a little too busy. He feels sad and alone, until four children find him and show him the way home, with much fun along the way.

Lyrical text makes a perfect read-aloud, and the playful illustrations and spare text work well for the younger board book level.
