Bears are great. Especially Philip Waechter's bear. He finds life wonderful and has a kind, generous heart. But in order to be truly happy, he needs a friend that he can tell: How nice that you exist! An enchanting book to give to someone you love, humorous and a bit wise.

Bears are not that different from humans, as we well know. This bear is beautiful and wonderful and likes to look nice. He loves the little things in life, but also the big things and is game for any type of fun. And what's even better - he's also intelligent. Sometimes he feels that he is something very special. Yet there are some days on which he feels lonely and depressed. And he starts to walk as fast as he can to see you - "How nice that you exist!"

With a great portion of irony and a humorous look at life, Philip Waechter tells a simple story in his own superb manner.
