Scythy's First Christmas: A Wandering Bears Adventure

This is a story about a little bear from the land of the Scythes, north of the Black Sea, in present-day Ukraine. That is why he likes to be called Scythy. He loves to travel and is very curious.

He had traveled north and west and decided to go east and south around the Black Sea, and then east again, when he ran into an interesting caravan going west. It was very interesting to him that they were following a star. So he decided to stay with them.

When the star finally stopped, he and the woodland animals did some investigating and found out what was going on.

While the animals were gone, strange and frightening things started to happen.
