The Bear Went Over The Mountain
By John Higgins & John Jacobson
Once upon a time there lived a bear with many friends, but he was restless. Surely there is more to life than eating honey and berries, and sleeping the winter away! It's time to expand my horizons, he thought. So one day, Da Bear declares “this is the day” and begins his journey up the mountain in search of adventure and - “to see what he could see,” of course. But beware! What's lurking over there? Come along and see what Da Bear and his animal buddies discover!
