What the Grizzly Knows

author: David Elliott
illustrator: Max Grafe

As a little boy falls peacefully into sleep and starts to dream, his teddy bear grows and growls and pops his button nose to turn into a real grizzly bear. And amazingly, the boy becomes a grizzly bear, too following his friend to the nighttime forest to hunt and prowl, feast and fish until the morning sun returns. David Elliott's spare, poetic text and Max Grafe's luminous illustrations tell a transfixing bedtime story, gently carrying sleepy listeners into dreamland.

A lyrical bedtime tale of a little boy and his bear is an ode to the magic of dreams and the transformative power of the imagination.
