Bear is a bit of a curmudgeon and would rather stay at home than accompany his friend, Mouse, to the library. The excuse Bear gives is that he already has all the books he needs, but he begrudgingly agrees to accompany his friend anyhow.

Once they arrive at the library, Bear loudly informs Mouse that he is only interested in books about pickles. 'SHHHHHHHHHH!' says Mouse. You are supposed to be quiet while in the library.

Things are not going very well until Bear hears the librarian reading to a group of children. She is reading a story that features a bear and, as unlikely as it might seem, a pile of sliced pickles. How strange! But Bear is totally entranced and loves the tale, so the outing is a smashing success.

This amusing story is another in the popular Bear and Mouse series and illustrates the fact that sometimes we will have a good time doing something we might not have really wished to participate in.
