Summary

Summary

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.


Author Notes

Ryan T. Higgins (ryanthiggins.com) is an author and illustrator who likes the outdoors and cheese sandwiches. He is NOT a grumpy old black bear, but he DOES like making books about one--starting with the bestselling Mother Bruce, which received the E. B. White Read-Aloud Award and the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Honor. He lives in Maine with his wife and kids... and too many pets. (Bowker Author Biography)

Publisher's Weekly Review

Bruce, a curmudgeonly blue bear, is no stranger to cases of mistaken identity, and he'd just as soon skip the holiday ("Bruce did not like fun./ Bruce did not like cheer."). But being a "mother" to a gaggle of geese and three mice-all bursting with Christmas cheer-means that hibernating isn't an option. When a raccoon mistakes the red-suited bear for Santa, his denial goes unheeded and word spreads fast. Soon, a menagerie of ecstatic woodland animals crowd Bruce's cabin, eager to sit in the lap of "Santa Bruce." Bruce's children don't help the situation: "Everyone, listen up! Single file! No pushing! Santa Bruce has time to see all of you!" Expressive artwork captures Bruce's gently cantankerous demeanor, along with his cast of adorable admirers, as the story continues to its logical conclusion. Thankfully, Bruce has yet to break character by so much as cracking a smile. Ages 3-5. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
