Four charming children's stories by Caldecott Medal–winning illustrator and author Arnold Lobel offer warm, vibrantly illustrated tales of love, friendship, and discovery. This collection marks the first time these books are available in a single edition, offering readers and listeners a winsome combination of humor and subtle moral teachings. Contents include: The Bears of the Air, the tale of four little bears who try hard to be good and do everything that Grandfather says but always get into trouble. Prince Bertram the Bad, the story of a naughty little prince whose pranks go too far― when he teases a witch, he is turned into a dragon. The Great Blueness, a fable that recounts a wizard's discovery of colors and his transformation of the world. The Man Who Took the Indoors Out, in which Bellwood Bouse invites his home's inside to step outside and finds himself alone as his furniture skips away.
