Brambleby Bear is a North Woods bear, famous for his sweet culinary creations. Every day, he wakes up early and goes out to his grandmother’s woodstove and cooks the most delicious treats for his woodland friends. Pancakes, maple-nut fudge, and blackberry cake with whipped cream are some of the sweet gooey treats enjoyed by the animals and birds of the forest. But suddenly, a disaster strikes.
