Written by Antje Damm

Bear has been sitting and waiting since dawn.
“I’m waiting for Goliath,” he tells everyone.
“Goliath is coming! He’s my best friend.”
At last, the bus pulls up. But no one gets out.
But Bear is sure: “He’ll definitely show up. You’ll see!”
Bear waits patiently for his friend. The robins fly to the south and the first snow falls. When Bear awakes from a long sleep, he hears a noise like a hand sliding slowly across paper. Goliath is coming! But Goliath’s identity is a big surprise.
