There once lived a naughty and mischievous bear who liked playing a game he called "Hide and Scare". Then along came Rabbit, who offered advice - a short rabbit lesson on how to be nice.But can a little rabbit show a big bear that there is a kinder way to play?

He also plays the piano and accordion very, very badly.
