Recorded with

Benjam Bear

The huge, fluffy creature had a long snout with rows of teeth, which were pointed like daggers. His fearsome appearance dissappeared with one slow look from his warm, brown eyes. This wasn't any savage bear, but a kind-hearted, gentle creature. The sunlight shone, reflecting from his gleaming fur making it look as soft as silk. He strolled through the town, turning his head slowly to enjoy the view, paws padding cautiously along the thin, overgrown path. This beautiful bear was named Benjamin and he was the kindest and most caring bear that anybody would ever meet.
