“Now that people live in towns and bears live in the woods, have you ever wondered what happened to the bear folk?” At bedtime Ursula asks Daddy to tell her the tale of the bear folk—special beings who can choose to be either a bear or a person, depending on whether they want to catch a fish or read a book.
