The Old Man and the Bear, Copyright 1987

Originally published in German. The author Janosch is one of Germany's most successful and beloved children's authors and illustraters. The jacket shows a little age and some wear. The book without the jacket is in very good condition, perfect for a gift. The inside of the jacket reads as follows:

"Expressively illustrated with soft washes of color, this is Janosch's subtle Holiday fable about kindness, generosity, and the impotance of helping one another. "

This little book is a delight, each page is beautiful art. The little book measures approximately 6.5 by 7.75 inches.
