  • Overview

    Natalie’s finished her Christmas list.  It’s really quite perfect with one little twist:  A remote control scooter, some candy to share and, if it’s no trouble, a big polar bear. 

     But a fun-loving bear as a pet?  He’s very big and always hungry.  And he scares the pants off the mail lady.  How will Natalie ever convince the grown-ups that, despite all his shenanigans, a polar bear really is no trouble?

  • Excerpt

    Natalie’s finished her Christmas list.
    It’s stamped and sealed. And it’s been kissed.
    A list of gifts she doesn’t want missed.
    It’s really quite perfect…with one little twist.
     
    A remote control scooter, some candy—to share,
    a tea set, a trumpet, and ties for her hair,
    a cozy-and-rozy red sweater to wear,
    and…if it’s no trouble…a big polar bear.
