Synopses & Reviews
Ella is in charge of this book, and she will tell you something right now. There are NO BEARS in it. Not even one.
Ella wants to tell you a story — a story with absolutely no bears. You dont need bears for a book. You need pretty things like fairies and princesses and castles and maybe funny things and exciting things. In Ellas kind of story, there are no bears in the village or the castle or the deep dark forest or faraway lands. But there might be . . . a monster! Riffing on well-known fairy-tale themes, this fun, offbeat story is perfectly matched by playful illustrations with a running visual joke that will keep even bear lovers smiling.
