Shortlisted for the Bisto Irish Children's Book Award. Touching and funny, this is also a visually sophisticated picture book which lightly carries an important message about the use – and misuse - of resources. All is not well in the forest: branches of the trees keep disappearing and no one knows who has taken them. While searching for the culprit, the forest’s inhabitants turn accusingly on each other. Luckily they all have water-tight alibis so who can be carrying out the thefts? At last, they find the culprit. It is Bear who, in his desperation to win the paper aeroplane competition, gathers as much wood as possible and turns it all into paper….The delight for the readers is that they can follow what Bear is doing long before the truth is out.
