Imagine seeing a bear on a bike. You might not be surprised if you're at a circus or even at the zoo. But what if you're in a plain old park?
That's what happens in author Ken Olson's The Bear on the Bike. Visitors to the park are surprised to see a talented and entertaining bike-riding bear. But as the crowd grows, the bear's trainer worries about what could happen. So he decides to take surprising action.
The Bear on the Bike is a fun story that will keep you entertained.
The action takes place in a nameless city park, and the owner of the bear lives in a nameless city. The bear entertains the crowd of spectators first by riding the bike down the tennis court and back, then in a figure 8. The surprise ending puts the bear's owner in the County Attorney's office.
