A girl and a bear open the doors of their world to us, world as ordinary as it is extraordinary. Spending all the time together, they discover many new things. They learnt that the faster you ride a bike, the stronger the wind blows through your hair. They climbed the highest hills trying to reach the sunbeams. They enjoyed the autumn playing hide and seek with the sun. They would do everything together, until one day... The Girl and the Bear is a warm, dreamy story about friendship and growing up.
