The sun will not come up, hummph! Bear thinks he can do anything–even keep the sun from rising. Brown squirrel is sure the sun will come up, no matter how many times Bear commands it not to. Sure enough, the next morning the sky reddens and the sun appears. Brown squirrel is so happy to be right that he teases Bear. What happens when a little brown squirrel teases a big black bear? Brown squirrel gets stripes, and he is called a chipmunk from that day forward… Joseph and James Bruchac join forces to create this buoyant picture book, based on a Native American folktale.
