Janna (fortunateizzi) | 48 comments This was a children's picture book that I loved when I was a kid in the early 90s. In it, there was a bear who meets a gypsy-like couple. Eventually there is some sort of drama and I think the bear's tail gets stretched out and somehow he ends up as the Big Dipper constellation (aka the Great Bear). Or possibly the Little Dipper (Lesser Bear), not sure. I'm having a hard time remembering the plot, but I can still see the illustrations pretty clearly. I think it may have been based on a folktale of some kind.
