The CINNAMON BEAR is the classic
story of Judy and Jimmy Barton who search for the family's
Silver Star which goes on top of their Christmas tree.
When they discover the star has
disappeared from the attic. They meet The Cinnamon Bear, and fly
off to Maybeland in his Soda Pop Airplane in pursuit of the
Crazy Quilt Dragon, whom they believe took the ornament.
There they meet a multitude of
unusual characters, including Crazy Quilt Dragon, the
Wintergreen Witch, Fe Fo the Giant, and even Santa Claus.
Each amazing adventure is a cliff hanger. Several times they
recover the star, only to lose it again. Eventually the star is
found for good and they return home just in time for Christmas.
This delightfully exciting children's classic Christmas
adventure story was written by Glan Heisch, I believe inspired
by the stuffed bear of his boyhood, for his daughter, Catherine.
Radio historians differ on the
