Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Children's book bound in fake red leather stamped with designs. Bear and rabbit go on a quest with the whole bear family traveling around the world getting rhyming clues to find something heart of a bear?
A large red book bound in fake leather with designs stamped on it in squares and a colour illustration in the middle. I got this book in the early 80's but I don't know how long it had been in print. It's about a very affluent bear family.
A young bear wakes up in the winter and can't get back to sleep. A rabbit lives with them and is drinking brandy in the library. A conversation ensues and somehow they end up going on a quest for something. It may be "the heart of a Bear" but I can't remember.
The whole extended family wakes up and insists on going with them. The family and rabbit go around the world and even under the sea finding rhyming clues.
The young bear and rabbit do all the actual searching while the family enjoys the sights, the opera, banquets etc. In the end they find that what they were looking for was in the library all along - I think it was the friendship between them or love or something like that.
Amazing full page pictures of the bear family and accompanying rabbit - not cartoonish in style, more like fine illustration. Lots of colour and detail. One one page they go to the opera and the family is decked out in early 20 century?
Russian finery - I remember one of the aunts has really long strings of pearls. Another page shows a journey to the ocean floor and their coach is pulled by leafy seadragons. I have not seen these illustrations equaled in children's literature.
Thank you so much for your help - I have been searching for this book for many years. Also listed online as: To The Heart of a Bear: Abiner removes the cover and finds the image of a beautiful woman with a real ruby heart on a chain around the neck.
The discovery pushes Abiner into a quest to solve the mystery of Lady Audrey's sin, hinted at in a riddle chiseled into the statue.
Puppy Abiner's rabbit friend and the bear's many relatives join him on board the Argyle, sailing to exotic lands and strange adventures. Along the way, the young Smoothie picks up more clues to the case of the red heart and he restores it, at last, to its rightful owner.
Kyte's inspired puns and delicately colored paintings provide extra attractions to his funny, fanciful tale. This book is a sequel to The Last Elegant Bear: The Life and Times of Abiner Smoothie, which had a fake brown leather cover.
