Once upon a time, deep in the woods of Dorkland, a young lady went for a dawdle. She decided to take off her boots to go for a paddle in the cold clear water of the River Mole. Thinking she was all alone she was surprised to hear someone jumping accross the stepping stones near by. Looking up she saw her boots jumping from stone to stone. Upon closer inspection, she witnessed a little bear jumping across the river in her boots. His name was Hawthorne, and he was a Boot Bear. Now Boot Bears love having their long legs all warm and cosy in a pair of boots. They patiently wait by river banks, in a hope that a human will take off their boots to splash in the river, then the bears sneak out and steal the boots. I made a deal with Hawthorne. I invited him to could come and live with me at 9 Cloud Street, where he could share all my boots. He’s now a very happy bear, as his legs are always warm and cosy.
