Addis Berner Bear arrives in the city with his trumpet but the city is so huge and noisy that he can't remember why he's there.

Story

Addis Berner Bear has come to the city with his trumpet but it’s so huge and noisy and everything moves so fast that he forgets why he has come. He needs to work out why he is here and what he has come to do.

Why we chose it

A story told in few words and in beautiful water colour illustrations – a beautiful example of how pictures and words combine to tell a story.
