A bear wanted to paint a picture. Who ever heard of such a thing?

Cover of Bear's Picture

Bears don’t know what a picture is supposed to look like...do they?

Daniel Pinkwater turns art (and art critics) upside down in his classic tale re-illustrated by D. B. Johnson.

Two gentlemen criticizing the bear's painting.

(Pssst...Don't forget to turn the book upside-down to see the real picture the bear paints.)
