Once upon a time there was a bear who just sat in his cage in the zoo until, a child dropped a book into the bear's cage.
Bear looked at it, turned the pages, there were beautiful pictures, some made him laugh, others surprised him.
Over the years, this same child and the bear grew close. Bear forgot the bars of his cage; he travelled with the boy and stories of the books.
A book on the magic of books!
