I'm not sure what he intended, but this comes off as more of an homage to Winnie-the-Pooh, than a Pinkwater original.

We follow a bear, who finds treats left by a mysterious creature and then sings little ditties about his discoveries. At some point he decides to return the favors and attempt to unveil the unseen, but generous "friend". It gets a little confusing for the reader (depsite Pinkwater's parenthetical note)when the two finally do converse, but it shortly becomes a typical perpetual friendship and storybook ending.

Will be interesting to see who takes to this one, as some will be won over b Hillebrand's classic-feeling illustrations.
