Bear in Love by Daniel Pinkwater

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 it's sweet and crunchy! Where did it come from? Did someone leave it for him? Then, the next morning, there are two more of the sweet crunchy things! 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? A charming little mystery about unexpected kindnesses - and finding that extra-special someone.


A sweet, gentle story about a large bear, endearingly portrayed through Hillenbrand's lovely mixed media illustrations rendered predominantly in soft shades of greens, browns, greys and blues. In fact both characters are totally huggable * Red Riding Hub *
