Back by popular demand! A little white bear and his magic pencil make wonderful things happen in this early work from celebrated author illustrator Anthony Browne.
As a bear strolls through the forest, he meets a lonely gorilla, a noisy crocodile, a lion, and even an elephant. They all look as if they are missing something, so the bear steps in to save the day, using his magic pencil to draw just what they are looking for. Originally published in 1988, this enchanting story by a picture-book master is available again for a brand-new audience.
