Marvin Bear and The Eating Place was written on a rainy day, in my car, next to a golf course somewhere in South San Jose, in 1980, and was illustrated over the next two years.

Marvin opened one eye.
The sun was just peeking into his window
But Marvin's eye closed again.

Outside in the raspberry patch Blue Jay was singing a
Good Morning song just in case anyone was still in bed.

Marvin WAS still asleep.
He was dreaming about Raspberry Pie with Thimbleberry sauce
and wonderful days in his sailing boat with Sea Lion and Otter.
