An Old Bear dreams of his younger days and enjoys a fantastical romp through each of the four seasons. When he awakes from hibernation and walks out into a gorgeous spring day, it takes him a moment to realize that he’s not dreaming anymore.

An endearing story, made extraordinary by Henkes’ stunning art. His watercolor and ink illustrations capture the beauty of each season in a breathtaking, magical way. The whimsical text and dreamy quality of the scenes elevate its charm even further.


With his eating stool, eating spoon and gigantic eating mouth, Finnigin the hungry skeleton travels the land, ever looking for a feast.  His reputation as the biggest eater of all proceeds him, and the local monsters shun his requests for morsels to add to his bone soup.  Will he somehow persuade them to contribute to his thin broth?
