A bear cub wandering the forest comes upon something strange and unexpected. He runs his stubby paws over what he can reach... PLONK!
He leaves. He comes back. He tries again and again on the piano until suddenly there are beautiful sounds. He is so good at playing the piano that one day he is discovered and invited to come out of the forest to share his talents with the world.
He will have to leave his friends and sail forth on a grand adventure. Will he ever come back? Will his friends forget him? Can you ever go home again?
A lovely, charming, slightly wistful tale of a bear of great talent and it turns out, great heart.
