Little Ellie is on her way shopping with her Granny and asks for a story to fill in the time. Granny invents a Grandma Bear and a Baby Bear – who just happen to be out shopping. As Granny’s story grows Ellie (and the reader) can see what Granny can’t – bears following, doing just what they are. Then Ellie and Granny play a game of hide-and-seek and a world of imagination comes tumbling in, wonderland-like. Gentle illustrations with a delicate line create a quietly secretive mood, which could be startled at any moment in this charming book for readers under 5.
