About The Book
The bear knows exactly what the mountain looks like—a forest. The sheep, octopus, and ant also know the mountain. It’s a meadow! It’s surrounded by water! It’s a maze of tunnels! The chamois and snow hare have their opinions too. It seems the mountain looks different to every animal. How can that be? And whose point of view is right?
Rebecca Gugger and Simon Röthlisberger’s insightful story about tolerance is told in their feather light way.
"A natural for storytime, this humorous tale elevates the beauty of many perspectives."—Kirkus Reviews
