In this visually expressive story, a papa bear frantically searches for his wandering son as he chases a bee through the forest, into the city, and eventually into a theater. Tall pages provide lots of room for expansive, detailed vistas, filled with both the fauna and flora of the forest, or in the case of the city, all the objects and people. As the book progresses it becomes a game to find the little bear and his bee. The artist does not intentionally try to hide him, rather the bear just gets lost in the crowd, or blends into the environment. Each page contains funny details, such as a deer with a broken antler, or the papa bear dressed up for the theater. No specific time period gets mentioned, however the architecture and vintage colours suggest the early modern period. Why people at this time would be oblivious to a bear in their midst is uncertain, but it makes it all the more amusing.
