Old Bear is very sick. With his animal friends gathered around him, Bear tells them that he must say good-bye, for he is going on a special journey. ""But ... but ... you're not dying?"" asks Rabbit, and Bear admits that he is. All the animals are saddened by the news, but the little fox is especially upset--hurt and angry and confused. He cannot imagine life without Bear. How Fox and the other forest animals deal with the loss of their friend is a moving story about death, grieving, and the solace to be found in memory.
