Illustrated by

3.5 based on 18 ratings & 2 reviews on Goodreads.com

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.

With a laugh-out-loud text full of witty rhymes and silly scenarios from Ian Whybrow, and illustrations by Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo, that are bursting with funny details, The Christmas Bear is a Christmas book with a difference - and there's a flap to lift on every page, so children can join in the fun!

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