"CLANG! CLANG!" "TOOTLEY-TOOO! "The impossibly cute bears are back and this time they have musical instruments at the ready. The little bears pick up their instruments and play a noisy song. They don t care if the notes are wrong! But uh-oh, Big Brown Bear is fast asleep. Will their lively music wake him up? A small moment of trepidation segues into a jubilant performance in a story that will be sweet music to little ears."
