This is a good example of modern fantasy in that the bear in the story is green and bears are not green in real life. Also, it is a fantasy because the bear acts like a human as he has a favorite color, lives in a house, paints, and mows the lawn. It does hold some truth in it when it talks about the colors of the different seasons. The plot of this story is both repetitive and holds conflict. As the seasons change, the colors of the forest that the bear lives in change and the bear paints his house to fit the seasons. However, at the beginning we learn that he likes green the best, but he paints his house other colors during other seasons to match it. But at the end of the story, he mows the lawn and all of the grass flies up and sticks to the wet pink paint on the house and his house goes back to green and he keeps it that way, thus the conflict is resolved.
Media: The illustrations look like pen and colored ink.
