Could everyone be right in this lighthearted story about different perspectives?

 

The bear knows exactly what the mountain looks like—a forest. The sheep, octopus, and ant also know the mountain. It’s a meadow! It’s surrounded by water! It’s a maze of tunnels! The chamois and snow hare have their opinions too. It seems the mountain looks different to every animal. How can that be? And whose point of view is right?

Rebecca Gugger and Simon Röthlisberger’s insightful story about tolerance is told in their feather light way.

Rebecca Gugger and Simon Röthlisberger were both born in Switzerland?and live together in Thun—near forests, mountains, and fresh air. Rebecca is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer, studied at the HKB (Bern University of the Arts), and likes to have her head in the clouds. Simon is a trained graphic designer currently working as an art director and has been known to hoist a sail or two. Every now and then the two work together as a team, wielding pen and pencil side by side.
