When Papa Bear, Mama Bear, and Baby Bear return from a snowy stroll on Christmas Eve, they are surprised at what they find! Their pudding . . . eaten! Their chairs . . . broken! And who is that, fast asleep in Baby Bear's bed?
This ingenious holiday treat positively glows with warmth and humor. Sparkling prose by Maria Modugno and splendid watercolor paintings by Jane Dyer and Brooke Dyer make every turn of the page a fresh delight.
Papa Bear, Mama Bear, and Baby Bear weren't expecting any company when they went for a walk on Christmas Eve, but that's exactly what they got! Debut author Maria Modugno teams up with award-winning artists Jane and Brooke Dyer to deliver a festive twist on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, with Santa Claus stepping in as the cheerful intruder.
Leaving their pudding to cool on the kitchen table, the unsuspecting bears head outdoors for a crisp evening walk. But when they return, they are shocked at what they find! Their pudding . . . eaten! Their chairs . . . broken! Their cozy beds . . . slept in! And it looks like the culprit is still there! Fast asleep in Baby Bear's bed is someone awfully familiar. A fluffy white beard, a red jacket covered in soot, and two black boots sticking out from under the covers. Could it really be . . . ?
With sparkling prose and splendid watercolor paintings, this delicious holiday treat glows with warmth and humor that will delight readers page after page.
