Julia has many friends in the forest by her house. She climbs trees with Scotty the squirrel, plays hide-and-seek with Abigail the groundhog, and has farting contests with Frieda the skunk.

Julia dreams of meeting a bear, a bear she could play with and hug. But no bear has ever showed its snout. Julia tries to attract one with delicious food. To her surprise, it’s not just the good smells that attract bears, it’s books too!

How to Catch a Bear Who Loves to Read is a quest for friendship that encourages determination, mutual help and a love of reading.
