written by Sabine Lipan & illustrated by Manuela Olten
A bear is on the 11th floor. That doesn’t exist, does it? The little boy from the skyscraper saw him clearly. How did he get there? On the elevator but before he went on the bus and before that on the bike. A charming and funny story about the friendship between a boy and a bear who left the forest to see the sea.
