The Bear was really unlucky. It was unfortunate that the bumps in the ground he tried to smooth out had turned out to be ant-hills. And that the holes he had filled in in the rabbits’ meadow were their front doors. But now he was being educated by the Hermit. Although the Bear did have a lot to learn, he was still better than the Hermit at fishing.
