First Star: A Bear and Mole Story (Hardcover)
WILL HILLENBRAND'S beloved Bear and Mole are back for a fifth adventure!
WILL HILLENBRAND'S beloved Bear and Mole return in First Star! It's a beautiful summer afternoon, and Mole wants to stay outside and watch the stars turn on. Bear suggests they hike up to Camp Tiptop and stay the night. They pack--stuffing and rolling--stop to pick blueberries--yum, yum, yum!--and climb, climb, climb. As dusk falls at the summit, Bear tells Mole the bearish legend of how the first stars came to be: long ago, First Father Bear, First Mother Bear, and First Little Bear were the only bears in the world, and there were no moon or stars. . . . In this beautiful and imaginative story, Hillenbrand spins an enchanting tale of friendship, storytelling, and starry nights.
