Description

Hear the best-selling book The Bear and the Piano come to life with this special gift-edition sound book. 

One day, a young bear stumbles upon something he has never seen before in the forest. As time passes, he teaches himself how to play the strange instrument, and eventually the beautiful sounds are heard by a father and daughter who are picnicking in the woods.

The bear goes with them on an incredible journey to New York, where his piano playing makes him a huge star. He has fame, fortune and all the music in the world, but he misses the friends and family he has left behind in the woods.

Enjoy this moving tale of exploration and belonging from a prize-winning author-illustrator, now brought to life with real piano sounds that tie in with the story.
