Jon the polar bear is very busy. In the morning, he photographs the incredible Arctic sunrise. In the afternoon, foreign bear tourists strolling around the city square want him to take their pictures in front of the Big Viking statue. “It sure is pretty here!” they sigh. Jon believes it is the best place on Earth, too. Yet one night when the polar bears are dancing and enjoying themselves in the community center, it starts raining outside. The rain doesn’t stop by morning, nor even the following day. What is Jon to do now?
