Happy 30th birthday, Old Bear!
To celebrate the anniversary in style, Jane Hissey has created an entirely new adventure featuring her beloved character for the first time in 13 years--and it's filled with her customary charm, humor, and beautiful illustrations. All the toys, along with their new friend Elsie the Elephant, are very busy preparing a special party for Old Bear. Elsie's especially excited about her gift for him: a painted umbrella. But when they go out to the garden, a gust of wind blows Elsie and her umbrella up, up, and away! Who will rescue her?
