"Tales Of Mr. Cinnamon" by Frances B. Watts with illustrations by Marcia Mattingly. The Saturday Evening Post Read - to - Me Series. Published by The Curtis Publishing Company, copyright 1981.
Cozy Hollow was just an average little animal town until Mr. Cinnamon came along. Then doors mysteriously began opening by themselves, the pine-log school house suddenly acquired a striking color combination, and ordinary popovers. All compliments of Mr. Cinnamon, inventor and odd-job bear, who is full of surprises that ultimately lighten and brighten the hearts of his fellow citizens.
The fact is, Mr.Cinnamon likes to have fun. And whether riding his Ice-bike or helping Mr. Poke-Turtle in a race against Hooligan Hare, he does it with his own unique cinnamon-bear flair.
Though his heart is in the right place, Mr. Cinnamon's techniques sometimes backfire: but his good intentions always manage to save the day. He simply can't keep his love and generosity (or plum pudding) under his magician's hat. A bear who dares to care, that's Mr. Cinnamon.
At the same time, he shows how a little imagination and some creativity can add zest to life's most tedious chores-washing windows, beating rugs, or even shoveling snow. When Mr. Cinnamon's around, there's bound to be excitement.
Whoever would have thought a cinnamon bear in blue overalls would have such a impact on an average little animal town...Introduce Mr. Cinnamon to your family and see what happens.
