The Bear and the Piano

The Bear and the Piano

by David Litchfield

This debut picture book follows a bear who finds a piano in the woods, teaches himself how to play, and pursues his dream to perform in New York City. When bear first tries to play the piano, it sounds awful; it’s only after years of dedication and practice that he becomes good enough to leave home and perform on a big stage. Bear eventually returns home to reunite with his woodland friends and celebrate his success. This is a gorgeously illustrated picture book about following your dreams and remembering your roots, from an exceptionally talented creator.
