One late winter day, a strange noise startles Bear out of his slumber. Grumpily searching for the source, he finds Duck, trapped in the thicket—but not for long. Bear frees Duck with a few scoops of his big paws, and their friendship begins. The more time the two spend swimming, exploring, and telling stories, the less Bear wants to go back to his lonely old life.  As spring turns to summer, and summer turns to fall, what else will change?

Stunning woodcut engravings illustrate this gentle story about kindness, the four seasons, and the joy of an unexpected friend.

It was the end of winter, and the day had barely started.
Duck blinked, smoothed his feathers, and stretched.
He took a running start, ready to fly off.

 

But his legs and wings got all tangled up,
and he rolled head over heels until—
CRASH!
He landed beak first in a jumble of branches.

The racket startled Bear from his slumber.
“What’s going on?” he grumbled. “Is it spring already?”
And he went back to sleep.
