The Moon Bear

By Steve Scher, BS '77 (journalism) 

One night, Gwen, a smart young girl who is not afraid of the dark, wakes up to find a giant bear climbing up the tree outside her bedroom window. Together Gwen and The Moon Bear discover the owners of the night. Scher, a personality of Seattle public radio for more than twenty-seven years, now writes on Whidbey Island, where he hears coyotes howling, watches bats flit across the starry sky, and listens to tree frogs serenading one another. Sometimes, on nights when there is a big full moon, he knows there may also be a marvelous creature shaking a big old tree.
