Uh-oh. Bear's head is stuck in a bucket. Oh, my. Oh, no. Fortunately Bear's good friend Dog is there to rescue him. Dog pulls, and he pulls, and he pulls—and still that bucket stays stuck. Things get sillier from there, as these two great friends get themselves into and out of tricky situations involving a very bouncy bed and a very messy room.

This title has Common Core connections.
