In this timely and ingenious parable, a bear goes out into the forest with a sword to chop down trees. Soon after, his impregnable fort is washed away by a flood and he goes out to find and punish the creature responsible.
After accusing a fascinating array of unusual creatures, including the keepers of the dam, a one-eared pigdeer, a fox who loves archery and some fruit-loving birds, he finally arrives at the truth: the flood was caused by some idiot with a sword who chopped down all the trees.
Davide Cali's powerful and timely story of the consequences of our actions, and the impact we can have on the world around us is delightfully and imaginatively illustrated by renowned Italian artist, Gianluca Foli, making his picture book debut.
The bear's remorse, and the actions he takes to make good his vandalism, will provide all young readers with food for thought.
