Happy 30th birthday, Old Bear! To celebrate the anniversary in style, Jane Hissey has created an entirely new adventure featuring her beloved character for the first time in 13 years—and it’s filled with her customary charm, humor, and beautiful illustrations. All the toys, along with their new friend Elsie the Elephant, are very busy preparing a special party for Old Bear. Elsie’s especially excited about her gift for him: a painted umbrella. But when they go out to the garden, a gust of wind blows Elsie and her umbrella up, up, and away! Who will rescue her?
