Christmastime has come.  Unfortunately for Bruce the bear, he will not be sleeping through this year’s holiday season, because he is a mother to a family of goslings.   While out shoveling snow, Bruce is mistaken for Santa Claus.  He tries to hide inside, but soon everyone in the forest wants Bruce to listen to what they want for Christmas and hand out presents.  Will Bruce keep his cool and not become a Scrooge?  I suggest you come in quick and pick up a copy of Santa Bruce to find out. 

If you have never read a Bruce book, I highly recommend all of them.  I don’t know if I could say I like one more than any of the others, but whenever a new one comes out, I can’t wait to see what the world has instore for Bruce and his family.  Bruce has starred in several of his own books.   And, if you didn’t know, the mice from Hotel Bruce also appear in a picture book called Be Quiet after they discover they are not the best at hotel management.

Description


Bruce is a lot of things. He is a bear. He is a grump. He is a pretty decent cook. And he is a mother.

One thing Bruce is not?

Santa Claus.

But that doesn't stop the whole forest from lining up to give him their Christmas wishes when he becomes the victim of mistaken identity-again.

Kids will howl with laughter as award-winning author-illustrator Ryan T. Higgins delivers another hilarious story about this bear who just can't catch a break.

About the Author


Ryan T. Higgins (ryanthiggins.com) is an author and illustrator who likes the outdoors and cheese sandwiches.

White Read-Aloud Award and the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Honor. He also wrote and illustrated Hotel Bruce, BE QUIET!, Bruce's Big Move, and We Don't Eat Our Classmates. Ryan lives in Maine with his wife and kids . . . and too many pets.
