Synopsis

When Old Bear paints a picture in bright colors, Little Bear and his friends want to paint one, too. They each paint a different pattern: spots, stripes, wavy lines. . . . But Jolly the giraffe's is too drippy, and Ruff the dog's is too splotchy. Leave it to Old Bear to turn their messy mistakes into an "all together" surprise masterpiece!

Jane Hissey's beloved characters are back, irresistible as ever, in this charming story that shows younger readers how wonderful things can come from working together.
