A magical story of friendship to power the imagination and encourage children (and bears!) towards a lifelong love of reading.
"That's just silly!" said his sister. "Bears don't read!"
George isn't happy doing the usual bear things like chatting and fishing. But what else is there? Then one day, he finds a book beneath a tree and knows... More than anything he wants to learn to read!
But, arriving in town, George soon discovers that it's not easy to be a bear at school! If only he could find someone to teach him the alphabet and change his life forever... Perhaps a little girl called Clementine can help?
A feel-good story of determination and friendship - sure to encourage a lifelong love of books.
