Me and Mister P by Madeline Miller
There are times when only a polar bear will do . . . "All I want is a normal family but no, I've ended up with the brother from Weirdsville. Liam is so embarrassing, but Mum and Dad can't see that and give him all the attention. Leaving me with zero! Zilch! A big fat NOTHING! And I'm not really sure how an enormous, funny, clumsy polar bear is going to help with all this, but he was standing on the doorstep, so I had to invite him to stay, didn't I? Well, what would you have done?" Meet Arthur and his brand new friend, Mister P - the world's most helpful(ish) polar bear! Packed with gorgeous illustrations throughout, this story has heart and humour in equal measure and is sure to be a hit with developing readers and as a great book to be read aloud.
Reader's Panel Review: I think Me and Mister P is a great book. I could visualise it very well. A POLAR BEAR -Wow! I really like the sketches, they are so nice, and Mister P, a BIG POLAR BEAR is afraid of a TINY SPIDER. It's CRAZY!
