"Three country bears out for a walk in the woods discover a mysterious device. Inside are pictures, videos, songs, and, best of all, a tally of friends from all over the world. Bruno is immediately enthralled and relishes in the addition of each new "friend" on his phone, ignoring the friends right beside him. When Bruno's phone loses power, he finds out who his real friends are. This picture book is a cautionary tale for the twenty-first century." - Foreword Reviews
