Could the bear have a secret friend? Who is leaving him surprises? The ever-lovable Daniel Pinkwater spins a funny and sweetly offbeat story.
One morning, the bear finds something just outside his cave. It is orange and long and pointy and has bushy green leaves at one end. And itís sweet and crunchy! Where did it come from? Did someone leave it for him? Then there are two more of the sweet crunchy things the next morning! The bear knows that someone nice is leaving him these treats. If only he could discover who it is! Should he leave something tasty in return? With the help of Will Hillenbrandís endearing illustrations, the inimitable Daniel Pinkwater spins a charming little mystery about unexpected kindnesses and finding that extra-special someone.
Daniel Pinkwater is the author of Mrs. Noodlekugel and many other books for children. Not all of his friends are human beings (the species to which Daniel Pinkwater belongs). He knows that friendship can be sweet and crunchy, even when the friend is quite different from oneself. Daniel Pinkwater lives in New York State.
Will Hillenbrand has written and illustrated dozens of books, including Donít Slam the Door! by Dori Chaconas, Baby Dragon by Amy Ehrlich, This Little Piggy by Jane Yolen, and Kiss the Cow! by Phyllis Root. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
