Mr. Bear reads luminous work by Melissa Llanes Brownlee, stories rich in Hawaiian language and life with characters who will make your heart ache. Featuring music by the writer herself on ukulele (and a mini-interview)! Plus, a visit to Miss Mousie’s Apothekarium yields a not-quite-coffee recipe and tales of blue flowers and golden knives.
