Mouse, Fox, Spider, and Snake all want to scare Bear. But Bear is the bravest animal in the forest—nothing scares Bear.
Except, maybe, one thing. Bear says that he’s scared of manju cakes. Armed with that knowledge, the other animals throw their manju cakes at him… only to learn that the only scary thing is how much Bear loves to eat them!
Based on “Scary Manju”, a tale in the Japanese oral tradition known as rakugo, Let’s Scare Bear is a trickster tale that reminds us that bullies come in all shapes and sizes.
