The book “The Trip to Panama” tells the story of two friends Little Tiger and Little Bear live happily in a little house near a river. The bear is a passionate fisherman, and the little tiger is an accomplished mushroom gatherer who has a small wooden duck with striped yellow-black wheels. So he calls it “tiger duck”.
One day, the teddy bear catches an empty wooden box labeled “Panama” from the river. He sniffs the box and smells like bananas and decides that Panama is the land of his dreams. The bear imaginatively tells his friend Little Tiger that Panama is a place where everything should be better, bigger and more beautiful than at home and that they should now travel to this country.
The next day, the two left for Panama with a saucepan, a fishing rod, a hat, and the tiger duck. First, make a sign outside the box and go in the direction shown. During their trip they meet a great variety of animals. Most do not know where Panama is, and some give them the wrong instructions. The two friends walk in circles through this information and finally reach their old home.
Meanwhile, since their home seems attacked by the weather, the bridge is no longer intact, and the trees and bushes have grown considerably, they are unaware that they have returned to their original home. They find the “Panama” sign on the floor in front of their house and therefore believe that they have actually reached their destination. They tidy up the house and are happy to finally be in the land of their dreams.
