PICTURE BOOK PICK OF THE WEEK

****



THE BEAR AND THE PIANO
by David Litchfield; Clarion Books (2016)



A bear finds a piano in the forest. Curious about this strange object, he touches the keys, but they make an awful sound so he goes away. But he can’t stay away – day after day, week after week he returns until eventually the sounds he creates become beautiful music.




















Soon other bears are drawn to his magical melodies and he performs for them night after night, until one night a girl and her father discover them. They invite the amazing piano-playing bear to the city to perform in front of hundreds of people.








The bear is torn – if he leaves the forest, the other bears will be sad, but he longs to explore the world beyond the woods and it his fondest desire to play bigger and better than ever before.


Bear has followed his heart, and his dreams have come true, but what will he find when he listens to his heart now and returns home?
