An inquisitive bear discovers the wonders of the world around him in this utterly charming picture book that celebrates curiosity, asking questions, and being true to yourself. Unlike the other mechanical bears in the village clock tower, Elbert can't help but notice all the marvelous things around him--snow falling in winter, fireworks in the night sky, the magnificent stag standing in the cobbled street below. But when Elbert's growing curiosity threatens to disrupt the orderly life of the clock tower, the other bears decide Elbert must go. What's a small bear with a big curiosity to do? Explore, of course! And maybe even find a way to spread his inquisitive spirit. Here's the perfect book for readers young and old who believe that staying curious is more important than following the rules.
