Inspired by works as ancient as Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, and as new as The Wachowski’s The Matrix, this story-sketchbook by the Brothers StJean tracks the misadventures of a bleary eyed and hungry Bear, following his winter hibernation. Initially selfish and indifferent to the troubles of the forest creatures around him, such as Fish, Robin, and Bee, he gradually learns that we are all part of one great, interconnected ecosystem. But, in the process, he has to shed his crankiness, and WAKE UP!

As a mother and tutor for young children, I highly recommend this novel to add to your children's book shelves. There is great artistry corresponding to a pleasant story found within this short children's book.

I found the reading a bit advanced for the first time readers to read to themselves, but easily read by an adult to a child. My 5 year daughter loves this tale and I do too!
