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.
