A wordless picture book, done beautifully by the father-and-daughter team Marije and Ronald Tolman, portrays a wonderful story of a polar bear that swims to he tree house and is later followed by a brown bear in a boat. They discover that it is a great place to read and spend time. When the water recedes, they are joined by a flock of flamingoes, panda bears, a rhinoceros that shakes the tree house and other animals who come to join by land an air. An inspiring book for both children and adults who might just want to create their own story.
