Bear turns grizzly when he doesn’t get his much needed 243½ days of sleep. But Bear has a problem. He’s a very light sleeper. So, Bear builds a brand new door to keep the noise out of his den. Meanwhile, one of Bear’s neighbors is Woodpecker. He’s a master carpenter with a specialty in real estate development. He loves building houses. But recently, he too has been having a problem. His houses have been disappearing. One morning, Woodpecker discovers a trail of debris, and this trail leads him straight to Bear’s new front door. Readers can surely guess what happens next. Bear and Woodpecker engage in a feisty exchange of name-calling. Will Bear and Woodpecker patch it up “literally” before Bear loses too much sleep?
