Buster Bear yawned as he lay on his comfortable bed of leaves and watched the first morning sunbeams. He stood up, walked to a big pine-tree and stood up on his hind legs. He was hungry. It was time to look for breakfast. Then Buster Bear heard squirrels, small animals and insects. The birds were singing. Suddenly Buster Bear realized what he wanted for breakfast. He decided to go fishing. Some fat trout would make him happy. So the bear went to the creek. He tried to make as little noise as possible. But there was already another fisherman. An otter named Joe was already preparing to eat his breakfast. He had a big fat tasty trout in his mouth. The otter did not notice Buster Bear. Buster Bear saw this trout. He immediately wanted it.
