This is a wonderful book - I read it about 15 years ago and I still think about it. Not many 'kids' books stick with you - but this one has. Another one that's followed me through the years is 'Tom's Midnight Garden'.
'Trouble in a Fur Coat' follows the life of a young bear cub as he comes out from his den for the first time, and discovers the delights of his forest and learns to do all the things a bear has to do to survive.
It really is a lovely book for young and old alike - read this to your children or grandchildren ... or just enjoy it yourself!
