To each his own- so these three small bears discover in the story and pictures by Margaret Wise Brown and Garth Williams. Each at separate times, all dressed up so that they don't know each other- mother, father and child decide to go to the city and see what it's like. It is the young bear's costume- a flower pot hat, leaf coat and log shoes- that will remind you of the misfit who tries to do what he shouldn't and suffers for it. But in this case all three find each other and know they are happier at home. Very endearing for children and grown ups. Weak stitching.
