The Best Birthday Present Ever! by Ben Mantle

It's Bear's birthday and Squirrel wants to give his friend the best birthday present ever! But what do you give the bear who has everything, including the Mallow O'Matic 5000 Marshmallow Canon and the Amazing Pop-Up Castle Tent Which-Looks-Like-A-House-With Two-Floors? Squirrel has just the answer! A stick. Except it's so much more than a stick ...A funny, warming story of friendship and birthday fun. Would make a perfect gift for anyone -- not just bears!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
