The Bear Was Not There

"I looked over by my oscilloscopes," said my dad. "Near the Tesla coils, past the arc welder, and even in the corner with the Theremin. But the bear was not there. Then something really strange happened."

What began as a routine task of finding a treasured stuffed koala for his daughter, quickly turned into an adventure for one father. Along with a talking pet cat, he must follow the koala's trail to encounter werewolves, pixies, aliens, and more to achieve his original goal: getting his children to sleep.

If you like wild adventure, poorly drawn post-it notes, sci-fi, and fantasy all blended together, then you'll love this fantastical journey.
