A sweet and typically charming book about a girl and her bear friend celebrating the end of autumn and the beginning of winter before Bear's big sleep. You can't really mess up a story featuring a bear. His last gift to her of a tree that has lost its leaves but gained much beauty is gorgeous.

Stephen Michael King's story of a bear about to go into hibernation is beautiful. He anthropomorphises a tree and the bear has one last winter frolic. A sublime picture book.
This is stunning. I love this. The book is beautifully illustrated and tells a lovely story. I love this. Just amazing.
