Synopsis

Merry Christmas Big Hungry Bear by Don Wood, Audrey Wood

It's Christmas and the little Mouse is looking forward to opening the presents around the tree. But what about the Big Hungry Bear who lives on top of the hill? The little Mouse's brave and generous spirit reminds us that Christmas is for everyone, not just ourselves. The little Mouse and the big, hungry Bear are known and loved by millions of children around the world. Published in 1984, The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear has been a perennial bestseller for over twenty years in countries and languages too numerous to mention.

Reviews

Follows the unlikely relationship between a large and possibly scary bear and a tiny mouse who takes pity on him and brings him Christmas presents. With a strong message about sharing at Christmas, this also has a good ending full of suspense and will most definitely amuse adults as well as, or perhaps more than, children. Cork Evening Echo Mouse has an enormous collection of presents, but when reminded that the Hungry Bear may not have any, does he generously donate some to the Bear? He does not! He barricades his house in case the Bear comes and steals his gifts. Eventually the Christmas spirit wins through and Mouse makes and epic journey to the Bear's cave where he gets a Big Surprise. The expressions on Mouse's face are just the beginning of why the book is a quick favourite throughout all ages. Scholastic Best Books Supplement, 2005
