Sold away from their parents' circus to be trained by a drunken clown, the little bears manage to escape, and, after a long search on their bicycles, encounter Mr. and Mrs. Bruin on the beach. Darling little bears, gentle humour, happy ending. One of only two books by the California teacher and artist, Fredrika or Frederica Grosvenor, somewhat in the style of G. H. Thompson, with finer line and minimal clothing. NOTE: This book has been SOLD.
