One morning a bear finds something just outside his cave. It's orange and long and pointy and it has bushy green leaves at one end. And it's sweet and crunchy! Where did it come from? Did someone leave it for him? There are two more of the sweet crunchy things the next morning. The bear knows that someone nice is leaving him these treats. If only he could discover who it is! Should he leave something tasty in return? He tries to repay the kindness with honey, but finds out his new friend is smaller, cuter, and very fond of a certain vegetable.
Endearing illustrations enhance this charming little mystery about unexpected kindnesses and finding that special someone.
- This friendship tale has cozy charm in spades; the gift-exchange plot is sweet, and the bear’s unassuming, childlike dialogue and taste for singing little songs to himself will win young listeners (and remind them of Winnie-the-Pooh).
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
- The simple story’s design is nicely romanticized, with full-bleed, lightly sketched forest backgrounds spread out over long pages, with the placid action depicted in mixed-media browns and greens with gentle highlights. The book’s Pooh-like charm protects it from preciousness and makes for a tender tale about the satisfaction to be found in a fond, contented relationship.
