In quiet Sun Valley, Idaho, a new arrival threatens to disrupt the peace and harmony at home. Straight from chic New York City, the stylish Miss Snoots, a well-dressed bear, joins the lively pack of animals at Brenda's house-a gift from Brenda's aunt.
Suddenly, things are not so simple. Miss Snoots is a prim and proper bear, and she has trouble fitting in. Her actions upset Jason Bear, R.Abbit, Bunny Marie, and the rest of the gang. But Scamp, a charming, handsome jaguar, believes time will help sort things out. After a disagreement, Miss Snoots packs her bags and leaves the group determined to find her misplaced family. She travels far and wide on some hilarious adventures-and the haughty bear soon learns about the true meaning of friendship and family. Will she ever change her snooty ways?
Her final expedition to Iowa was sure to be the best, thought Miss Snoots. But Aunt Bertha turned out to be a chubby, old bear who owned a dairy farm. "Major yawn!" cried Miss Snoots, "the cows must be just as bored since they're all lying on their sides in the green pasture. Or maybe they're faking death so they can be shipped out of here." Five minutes into her conversation with Bertie, she fell asleep! Aunt Bertha nudged her niece awake with a wooden walking cane. "You fell asleep while I was talking to you," her aunt exclaimed, disapproval in her voice. "Perhaps you need to go wash up and wake up!" Miss Snoots apologized, stating that she was tired from the long journey.
