A new pet causes a friendly disagreement for Moonbear and Little Bird in this charming reissue of a beloved classic by award-winning author and illustrator Frank Asch.

Bear and his friend Little Bird have a brand-new pet! She’s a cute little fish, and they name her Splash. One day Splash starts growing wings—or are those paws? Little Bird is convinced Splash wants to be a bird, but Bear disagrees and insists she’s turning into a bear just like him. Can Bear and Little Bird have different ideas and still stay friends? And just what will Splash become?

This refreshed edition of a beloved classic features the original text and art with an updated cover.
