Sadly it was a bit forgettable but not an unpleasant read.


When Addis Berner Bear arrives in the city, it's so big and confusing, and so loud and fast, that he forgets why he has come. With help from some – and hindrance from others – Addis Berner Bear must rediscover why he's there and what he's supposed to do. His great realization – he's a trumpet player – gives true meaning to his life and brings pleasure and joy to others.

This artfully illustrated, pitch-perfect tale about belonging and staying true to one's personal creative mission, whatever it may be, will uplift any reader who has ever felt, like Addis, a bit lost in this big, loud, fast, and confusing world.
