The Bear and the Piano by David Litchfield
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 son 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. This best-selling tale of exploration and belonging, which won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2016, Illustrated Book Category, is now available in board book.
