The Bear and the Piano
'One of the most impressive debuts of the autumn, this is a really stunning picture book with both critical and commercial appeal.' - The Bookseller
One day, a young bear stumbles upon something he has never seen before in the forest. As time passes, he teaches himself how to play the strange instrument, and eventually the beautiful sounds are heard by a father and daughter who are picnicking in the woods.
The bear goes with them on an incredible journey to New York, where his piano playing makes him a huge star. He has fame, fortune and all the music in the world, but he misses the friends and family he has left behind in the woods.

But, instead, I'll just say all four of my kids, of differing ages, loved it. And so did I.
I am so impressed with how beautiful this book is wrote and I'm so pleased I can help build upon her language with it.
This is a wonderful book and deserves to become a classic. I thoroughly recommend it.
