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.

They could hear a noise that grew louder and louder as they came closer to the Eating Place

"I think it IS a Terrible Thing in the forest", said Elly Bear in a low voice.
"We will have to warn everyone to hide!"

But when they peeked through the Tan Oak trees and Gooseberry bushes,
why,it was everyong from the Wonderful Forgotten Forest,
together at the Eating Place,
and they were ALL looking at Raccoon.
