Ulysses is a wise and patient man. He sounds like a bold person. He deserves to have a good fortune. However,is he alive or not? He sounds as if he got into an accident.

So many people here are like "her son  is a bear?!" And just generally being confused as to why Bernard is a bear. Did you not read the description of the book or????
This book is so compelling but can someone just explain to me what exactly is happening to Bernard? Is he cursed? If he's turning into a bear, how can he still talk? Does this book take place in a world where people just have the ability to transform into animals?
Tbh though, her son is becoming feral , and i would not like the inevitable to happen in my house, but i definitely wont sedate my own child and calling the animal control on them. Bear or not.
