Don and Audrey Wood present the long-awaited sequel to their best-selling classic The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear , in this delightful holiday tale about a little mouse with a BIG heart. Now the little Mouse is ready to celebrate a joyous Christmas — until he suddenly finds out that the big, hungry Bear who lives nearby would love to get his paws on all of the little Mouse's presents. After all, nobody ever gives presents to that Bear. Not even Santa Claus. In a burst of compassion, warmth, and generosity, the little Mouse dons a Santa suit and fills his sled with gifts for the big, hungry Bear. Painted in watercolors, acrylics, and colored pencil (the same technique as its predecessor), Merry Christmas, Big Hungry Bear! is sure to warm the hearts of families everywhere.
