What do a frisky dachshund and a slightly timid stuffed bear have in common?
They're best friends.
In these three sweet, funny, and meltingly tender stories, Laura Vaccaro Seeger, creator of such distinctive concept books as The Hidden Alphabet, Lemons are Not Red, Walter Was Worried, and Black? White! Red? Night!, proves she is as fine a writer as she is an artist and designer. In "Bear in the Chair" Bear wants to go outside and play with Dog, but can't seem to get down from a very high chair. Dog uses his long slinky back to come to Bear's aid, and everything turns out fine...well, almost. In "Play with Me, Play With Me" Dog wants attention, but Bear is engrossed in a book (about a dog and a bear, of course) and wants time to himself. Or so he thinks. And in "Dog Changes His Name" Bear helps Dog choose the perfect new name, with surprising results.
In this first of several books about the exploits of two best friends, Laura Vaccaro Seeger has created characters who follow in the distinguished footsteps of Frog and Toad and Henry and Mudge.
