Bear Dreams

This book started as a sequel to Magic Thinks Big, my book about a cat who sits in a doorway. I wanted to write about him imagining himself on a migration with geese. That idea didn’t work. But one image stuck: a furry mammal in a V of flying geese. I reworked the story — out with the cat, in with a bear — and came up with a book about a cub who doesn’t want to hibernate (a child who doesn’t want to sleep). His friends play outside, but he can’t, so he has to dream.
