Cranky Bear Wakes Up: An Animal Kingdom Story Sketchbook
shawn stjean, author
Inspired by works as ancient as Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, and as new as The Wachowski’s The Matrix, this story-sketchbook by the Brothers StJean tracks the misadventures of a bleary eyed and hungry Bear, following his winter hibernation. Initially selfish and indifferent to the troubles of the forest creatures around him, such as Fish, Robin, and Bee, he gradually learns that we are all part of one great, interconnected ecosystem. But, in the process, he has to shed his crankiness, and WAKE UP!
