Squirrel is invited to Bear's birthday bonanza and of course the perfect present is a stick. Squirrel wraps the perfect stick carefully and takes it along to the party. After all the games and delicious food Bear opens his presents. He receives a turbo fishing rod, a thunder boom drum kit, a mallow-matic 500 and a pop-up castle tent. Squirrel hands over his gift nervously.
"Oh!' exclaimed Bear, staring at the stick in surprise."
I would pair this book with The Silver Christmas Tree by Pat Hutchins - a favourite book of mine. I now see Ben Mantle has a Christmas book featuring Squirrel and Bear - I need to add this to my shopping list.
