Bertie and Archie are real little bears. They are both ten, and their little friend Herbie is just seven, so he has to run very fast to keep up with them!
After all the adventures of Book 1, this book begins with Archie going to school for the first time at the Little Bears’ School in the village of Bopplestone, high up in the mountain. Evidently, the three little bears put what they learn at school into practice and continue finding a way to make all little bears in the mountains happy again by building amazing works of engineering and generally getting into all sorts of adventures in the process!
They still have to work undercover, as people don’t know about them yet. This is why keeping the ‘Secret of the Castle’ adds to their very important, and often exciting, projects.
"Which of my little scholars wants to start?" asked Miss Wiseman.
Immediately, 48 little paws shot into the air!
