We bought this as our 2.5 yr old began nursery. it is a very simple story of the bear, Norris, Tulip and Violet (a mouse and a racoon) and how the bear waits for a fruit to fall, and then shares it with Tulip and Violet - who are both desparate to have some - and as a result he makes new friends.

The illustrations are lovely and the text lets you describe the event, e.g we pretend to sniff the Ploringe fruit along with Violet and Tulip, to stroke it etc.

A good book which is a regular bed-time read and makes the concept easily explained.

A lovely tale to share with children. Whimsical illustrations make it a delight for the young and old, alike. It has become a firm family favourite.
