Reviews of Merry Christmas, Big Hungry Bear! (Child's Play Library)

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. 20th November 2019

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.
