How the Bear Lost His Tail



Bear was once a sweet, loveable creature with a long, fluffy tail.


Fox is jealous of the bear's tail.


So when Bear asks him how he can catch a string of fish like the ones Fox is carrying, Fox plays a trick on him.


This traditional tale, retold by Carnegie award winning writer Susan Price and beautifully illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, tells why Bear became the grumpy, bad-tempered creature he is today.
