Product description

The first book in the best-selling, award-winning ‘Bear and the Piano’ trilogy.

Winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, Illustrated Book Category for 2016

Over 120,000 copies have been sold of The Bear and the Piano in the UK.

One day, a young bear stumbles upon something he has never seen before in the forest. As time passes, he teaches himself how to play the strange instrument, and eventually the beautiful sounds are heard by a father and son who are picnicking in the woods. The bear goes with them on an incredible journey to New York, where his piano playing makes him a huge star. He has fame, fortune and all the music in the world, but he misses the friends and family he has left behind. A moving tale of exploration and belonging from best-selling and critically acclaimed author David Litchfield.

The Sunday Times -‘The influence of the great illustrators Jon Klasen and Shaun Tan are detectable in David Litchfield’s opulent The Bear and the Piano.’ The Guardian -‘This book is full of breath-taking scenes, from the stunning forest to the rich New York skyline.’ Huffington Post -‘A heart-warming and beautifully illustrated tale of music, friendship and adventure.’ The Daily Mail -‘A sumptuous treat… [Litchfield] weaves magic with light and space…The ending will have your heart soaring like a soprano’s top C.’ The Bookseller -‘One of the most impressive debuts of the autumn, this is a really stunning picture book with both critical and commercial appeal [...] Distinctive, atmospheric and uplifting, it’s my picture book of the year.’
