This book is utterly charming - a bear who wasn't there before, suddenly is, and must figure out whether he is actually himself, with the help of the Convenient Cow, Lazy Lizard, and other interesting animals on a journey that reminds me of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

The bear who wasn't there, suddenly is, and is on a quest to find himself with the help of other animals around the forest, such as the Lazy Lizard & Convenient Cow and (my personal favourite) the Turtle Taxi. Absolutely delightful to read, and the illustrations are a pleasure to look at!
