Bear and Bunny by Daniel Pinkwater & Illus by Will Hillenbrand

This is a book about two good friends. 

Aren't they adorable?

Bear in his snug, minimalistic cave.

Bear thinks bunny is a small bear and bunny thinks bear is a large bunny. 

Sometimes our illusions help our friendships along.

I love them being interested in each other.

Any book that features Monarch caterpillars and milkweed in a prominent way is pretty awesome!

Sleeping friends.

But their idyllic world is rocked by a question...

"Should we have a pet?"

"If we had a pet, it would be smaller, and not as clever as we are. It would need us to take care of it."
The bear thought for a while.
Then he asked, "Could a pinecone be a pet?"

The question of caterpillars comes up, but is found wanting.

So they sleep on it.

These two are the friendliest friends!

Then they find a kittie--up in a tree. That says, "CROAK!"

But Bunny is pretty sure it is a kitten.

"What do kitties eat?"


Their wisdom is astounding.

And just like that, they have a pet to take care of!
