Will spring improve his mood? Will there be high spirits the summer? Will he manage to have some fun in the autumn? Will he go sledging in the winter? The Grumpy Bear prefers to spend his time grumbling and growling …
»Seasons? PAH! Not again, I remember them from last year,« grunts the Grumpy Bear. »That doesn’t matter,« the Tingeli replies cheerfully, »I remember you from last year, too!« The Grumpy Bear can’t hold back the spring and he’ll even pick some of the first crocuses (carping away as he does so, of course). Meanwhile, the Tingeli is busy making sure that the people of Timbuktu are always coming up with new activities for every season — summer camp or perhaps planning holidays at home (maybe making a palm tree!) in the long school break, kite-flying or going hang-gliding on the winds of autumn. »Stupid ideas,« grumbles the Grumpy Bear. But it’s the winter he finds worst of all; »How dare you just fall into my garden without so much as a by-your-leave!« he rants at the snow, crossly shovelling it out of his back yard. And what happens then? It turns into a lovely huge pile of snow – the perfect sledding hill!
