Remember Bruno, one of the most curious and cuddliest bears ever to snuggle out of a picture book and into our hearts? Bruno in the Snow sold over 7,000 copies in hardcover and 21,000 in trade paperback and became an instant hit with young children, parents and grandparents. Now, Bruno's back, fresh from his long winter sleep and ready to greet the spring. After filling his rummy with delicious fish, he confidently sets off to find his rabbit friends, Leo and Leah -- previously seen as willing partners-in-mischief in Bruno in the Snow -- but finds their house abandoned. This troubling problem hardly razes Bruno and after a series of sometimes scary, but always exciting adventures, Bruno discovers the happy reason for his friends' move.
Bruno Springs Up is a warm and wonderful first follow-up to Bruno in the Snow. Children love the Bruno stories because they are just the kind of comforting and reassuring tales that they need in their busy, independent lives
