Read full description of the books:
I was looking in the library catalog for Pavese's El bello verano. They hadn't got the Italian novel about adolescent loss of innocence and subsequent disillusionment, and recommended this picture book about a bear eating cake instead.
It was a nice book for younger children. I didn't especially enjoy it, but I can see it working for a three year old. That's probably the right age to enjoy feeling smarter and more with-it than the bear protagonist, who falls asleep before blasting off in his rocket ship, wakes to see a white landscape of snow, and thinks he has made it to his lunar destination.
I admired the bear's dedication (he spent months building that spacecraft!) and was glad that he was pleased with the outcome of his endeavor. Maybe the message is, if your friends are happy in their errors, don't disillusion them?
Since I have not yet read Pavese's novel, I can't say what this story has in common with the one I wanted to order. Maybe they both have "seasons" marked as a key word, or something simplistic like that. I'll update if I ever figure it out.
