Mr. Otter's New Neighbors

Author/illustrator: Li Xingming

It was the first day Mr. Otter had relocated to this new house on an island, and the sun was bursting through the clouds. A large group of neighbors came to visit, including Mr. Bear, who arrived late but brought a jar of sweet honey while everyone was busy decorating the house. However, he was so massive that he accidently shattered the door and smashed everyone's gifts. What are they supposed to do?
