Welcome home, bear. When Sosha spots Mister Bear at a yard sale, he is shaggy and worn and has a big hole in his side. But the old teddy bear captures Sosha's heart, and she cannot leave him behind. She takes him home, and with a little bit of thread, some soap, and new clothes, Mister Bear is as good as new -- and Sosha has a new best friend! Sylvie Wickstrom's appealing picture book is perfect for anyone who believes that special friends can be found in the most unlikely places, and for anyone who has ever loved a shaggy old bear.
