A solitary boy with a red knit cap and a knapsack wanders the countryside searching for a playmate—preferably one who likes to seesaw, catch, and hide-and-seek. A shy blue bear does not seem ideal, even if he does have his own knapsack, but—a series of notes and some failed attempts at the seesaw later—a friendship is formed. Lighthearted and with a poignant winter interlude, The Boy and the Bear is a charming tale about unlikely friends.
