About this book Poor Bear, who will send him a letter? Come rain or shine, he works so hard delivering the post to all the animals of the wood but he never receives anything himself. Hardly surprising since he’s never actually sent a letter! One day, Bear decides to write a few letters of his own, inviting all the forest animals to a party.
David Lucas‘ picture book is a beautifully rendered and finely executed story. The ease with which Lucas delivers this sweet and heart-warming tale gives his work, time and time again, the quality of a true classic.
Reviews from all over the world
"“A wintry, holiday read much like a gingerbread house: slightly slanted, but poignant, sweet, soul-warming and studded with delicious details that warrant close inspection.” - Kirkus Book Reviews
"The gentle story is more a general tribute to friendship and connection than a paean to the Christmas holiday. Young children who are new to the process of making friends will find this story particularly heart-warming. It is a title to read together, again and again." - Childrens Literature
“My favourite Christmassy book this year by quite a long way!” - Library Mice, Faboulous Five Christmas Ideas,
