Friendship is sweet - and sometimes when you let go of a wish it may unexpectedly be granted. While out looking for fir cones in the forest one morning, little Megumi meets a bear. They quickly become close friends, dancing and playing together every day. Then one afternoon the bear doesn't appear, and although Megumi goes out day after day to wait for him, still he doesn't come. Megumi is distraught! Finally, finally, finally, she stops wishing to meet the bear again and begins to forget about their happy friendship - and then...guess who unexpectedly turns up again? Features: a touching portrayal of the joy of friendship; endearing art with wide commercial appeal; and a gentle lesson in how patience can be richly rewarded.
