In this delightfully humorous children’s picture book, a mischievous dog narrates a far-fetched story about a bear who ate a girl’s sandwich. The bear leaves his forest home in pursuit of food, only to find himself in a new forest—an urban forest, unlike anything he has seen before—where he encounters surprising adventures.
Eventually the bear finds a sandwich left on a park bench and gobbles it up. When he’s discovered, the bear makes his getaway and doesn’t stop till he’s back in his forest home.
Vivid, playful illustrations accompany this tall tale, in which the real culprit—the dog himself—is subtly exposed. (Knopf)
