There are times when only a polar bear will do . . .
So Mum and Dad have decided we’re moving house, but not just down the road, not even in the same town . . . not even in the same COUNTRY! Not only that, but now they expect me to try and fit in and make new friends. Don’t they understand that I just want my old friends who love and accept me the way I am – bad jokes and all.
It would seem that the only friend I CAN make is this enormous POLAR BEAR who has come to stay. I didn’t ask for him, but I ended up with him at the airport instead of my missing suitcase . . .
Meet Joe as he tries to adapt to his new life. And meet Mister P, the world’s most helpful(ish) polar bear.
Packed with gorgeous illustrations throughout, readers will love this fun and heartwarming story.

Publisher Review

I just wanted to keep reading this hilarious book. * Minnie Barber, NG Kids * A touching and beautifully written story involving family drama and animal adventure. It's superbly told, containing humour and some very thought provoking and moving moments. Gorgeous illustrations too. Highly recommended. * Amazon customer * The subtle inclusion of this huge bear by the whole family . . . which in itself is funny . . . is also why the story works. I was hooked. Highly recommended. * School Librarian * Praise for Me and Mister P: This had me charmed: a hugely appealing story about a polar bear who unexpectedly comes to stay. A fresh and funny story of family and friendship with black and white illustrations throughout. * The Bookseller *
