Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803719140, Hardcover)

It's an exciting day for James and his animal friends when a mysterious gift arrives. Whatever's inside is hiccuping and rustling, but refuses to come out. That is, until Bear, who "was very old, and knew almost everything." uses kind patience and gentle encouragement to coax the mysterious creature out of its bag and right into James' heart. Full color.
