a book with no words that has the most extraordinary possibilities. daughter is absolutely drawn in by the illustrations of places and animals. hard to read if you lack in your own imagination. one scene where (savages?) try and shoot the dog out of the sky, how do you explain that?

Terrific wordless book! - Make up your own story about the bear's journey around the world with the red umbrella. Great for all ages.

The images relate the adventure of this dog carried away by the umbrella; the artist cleverly depicts the different ways the umbrella is utilized too!
