Bear and Bunny

By Daniel Pinkwater
Illustrated by Will Hillenbrand

From the inimitable Daniel Pinkwater comes a funny and disarmingly sweet tale of two forest friends musing on the nature of a good pet.

The bear and the bunny are friends who like to wander in the woods, look for things to eat, sing songs, and talk things over. One day, the bunny asks the bear, “Why do we not have some kind of pet?” Well, the bear is not sure what a pet is. So the bunny explains that it’s an animal that you take care of and feed, and one that loves you. But a pinecone is not the right pet for a bear and a bunny. And a caterpillar is nice, but it may not be very much fun. After a much-needed nap in the forest, will these two find their perfect pet? Beloved author Daniel Pinkwater and masterful illustrator Will Hillenbrand return with another charming and humorous story starring the sweetest of friends, a bear and bunny.

  • The endearing bear and the sweet rabbit from Bear in Love are back in this gentle, charming story about two friends in search of the perfect pet.
  • A sweet and funny young picture book by a well-known and well-loved personality in the children's book world.
  • Daniel Pinkwater and his segment on NPR are the Oprah Winfrey of the children's book world. His picks routinely hit the bestseller lists.
