A very, very hungry wolf is dreaming of a dinner of Bear Surprise when he actually runs across a young bear picking fruits and vegetables for his own supper. The wolf offers to help, and though he has other thoughts in mind at first, the two form a more mutually beneficial friendship.
To a hungry wolf, everything looks like food! The clouds in the sky remind him of fluffy bears, and he starts dreaming about a meal of Bear Surprise. When he meets a young bear out picking fruits and vegetables for supper, the wolf can’t believe his luck. He offers to help the bear gather food, and the grateful bear invites him home for dinner with his elder brother.
The wolf gets hungrier and hungrier, even as he and the bear work together cleaning, chopping, and cooking. But the elder brother is a huge bear, and the fruits, vegetables, and fish all look so good, that the wolf takes a bite of dinner...then another, and another….
This playful book tells the story about human qualities of friendship, teamwork, and trust in an animal allegory, brought to life by Ho Yun- Tzu’s multicolored palette.
