All sorts of Christmas treats are packed into this splendid board book! There’s the story – accidentally left behind by Santa, Christmas Bear must make his own way to Tom’s house in time for Christmas; there’s the text, full of jokes and very silly rhymes; there are Axel Scheffler’s illustrations, bright, busy compositions packed full of cheerful animals, all brimming with fun and character; there’s a hide and seek game – can you spot Christmas Bear?; and there are flaps to lift on every page. It all works as a marvellous whole, and will provide many, many hours of top reading entertainment! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Christmas Bear by Ian Whybrow

When Father Christmas sets off to deliver the presents, poor Bear is left behind in the workshop! How will he make it to Tom's house in time for Christmas morning? Lift the flaps to find out, as he chases Santa's sleigh through icy seas and snowy forests, all the way from the North Pole to Tom's cosy bedroom.

Also from Axel Scheffler and Ian Whybrow: The Tickle Book and The Bedtime Bear.
