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.

"Oh, yes, the sailing boat is very large", exclaimed Raccoon,
who had never seen Marvin Bear's tiny little sailing boat.
"It is definitely big enough for you."

"Then I am coming too", said Moose.
"It is thoughful of you to ask me along Raccoon. Thank you."

Moose lowered his head.
"Why don't you ride on my head? You can hang onto my antlers.
That way we will get there much sooner."

Raccoon climbed onto Moose's head and held on tight to Moose's fuzzy antlers.
Then they were off to the Eating Place under the Hazelnut trees.
