The Bear Who Wanted to be a Bear by Jorg Steiner
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Highlighting issues of environmental protection, human identity, and the pursuit of self, this remarkable modern fable brings philosophical subjects to the forefront through humor and imagination. When a brown bear awakes from hibernation, he is surprised to find that a modern factory has been built right over his den. His bewilderment only grows when a factory guard mistakes him for an unshaven human and, failing to prove his identity, is forced to become a factory worker.
