Buster Bear. All the smaller animals are afraid of him, especially after they see how he bullies little Joe Otter to get his fish for breakfast. Thus they are quite gleeful to discover that Buster is afraid of the farmer's boy, and shocked to discover that the boy is likewise afraid of Buster! What happens when bear and boy encounter each other in the blueberry patch is quite comical. I enjoyed this story quite as much as the previous one. The animals all like to pull pranks on each other and tease, but in the end it turns out they're quite good-hearted.
