A bear's curious discovery leads to crafty inventions in this storytime romp filled with whimsical wordplay and themes of friendship, imagination, and STEAM.

★ "Doherty's joyous, inventive, action-packed language begs to be shouted out loud....A delightful, rollicking, joyous romp." --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

An inquisitive bear ventures into People Town, where he makes quite the curious discovery. What is this? A springy thing--a bouncy thing--a sit-on-it, jump-on-it thing It's a bit too cumbersome to bring back to the woods, however, so Bear runs home to tell his friends. But none of his friends are willing to help, so Bear invents a "Rolly-Rumpity" to wheel home the "Thingity-Jig." Through trial and error--and lots of shooing away from sleepy friends--Bear finally wheels the Thingity-Jig home to the woods, where he graciously shares his find.

Reading specialist and former educator Kathy Doherty blends upcycling and STEAM with a delightful story and wordplay in this charismatic picture book that's ideal for read alouds. Illustrator Kristyna Litten brings the charming world to life with detailed, imaginative art and characters.
