When the bear wakes up one day, the forest seems strangely empty to him. Where are the other animals? “Everyone has moved to the city,” explains the hawk. “There are heated dens and delicious food!” This pleases the bear, and he makes his way into town. But the other animals want to get rid of him quickly, because: they are almost invisible to humans – and now comes this huge, clumsy guy! “The humans will get the hunter!” It’s not easy to catch such a big animal inconspicuously… But: Who is behaving like the bear in the porcelain shop?

Katja Gehrmann, born 1968, studied illustration in Mexico, Spain and at the University of Applied Sciences for Design in Hamburg. She has won numerous prizes. The City Bear has received several awards, including the Children’s Book Prize of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
