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.
