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.

Bears of the Wonderful Forgotten Forest love to eat,
so the first thing that Marvin did was go to the kitchen to fix good things to eat for the picnic;
Sweet honey and acorn muffins with huckleberries inside, wild ginger root candy,
and a chicory and watercress salad

Marvin made a cold fish soup with seaweed salad for Sea Lion.
Otter got fresh minced clams.

At the very moment Marvin finished there was a knock at the door.
