Bear likes peace and quiet.
Other folk are bothering and Bear does not like to be bothered.
One day, as Bear is sitting comfortably sipping his tea, deep in the branches of his tree he hears the munching and a crunching of a bright green Caterpillar.
Bear and Caterpillar soon become the best of friends, Caterpillar munching happily through heroic tales of Bear's younger life catching fish, raising cubs and being big, strong and fierce.
But one day Caterpillar stops munching and looks sick.
Bear fears he will lose his friend but, as if by magic, Caterpillar grows and stretches and from the leaves emerges a beautiful butterfly.
Can Bear come to terms with this new version of his friend who flies high above the trees and has stories of his own?
Puppetry, live music and beautiful storytelling combine in this charming tale about love, loss and friendship.
