"Zebra was building herself a house when Little Bear arrived. But his trousers were nowhere to be seen.

'I wondered whose they were,' she said. 'They were terribly useful. I tied up the legs with string, put them on my back and carried all these bricks here in them. But when I had enough bricks for my house I gave them to Duck to use as a flag for his sandcastle. I am sorry, LIttle Bear. Ididn't know they belonged to you.' "

This extract, taken from Little Bear's Trousers, appears on the inside front cover.
