The second book in the best-selling, award-winning ‘Bear and the Piano’ trilogy.
Hector and his dog Hugo have made music together through good times, bad times and even some crazy times. But when Hugo learns to play the fiddle, and gets the chance to play with Bear’s Big Band, Hector’s jealousy gets the better of him.
Can Hector swallow his pride and learn to be happy for his friend?
Set in New Orleans with a new cast of animal musicians, this big-hearted sequel to the best-selling The Bear and the Piano teaches that friendship, like good music, lasts forever.
