Henry Bear's Christmas

By David McPhail, 1940-


Henry Bear loves everything about Christmas, but most of all he loves having a fine tree, beautifully decorated, with presents underneath and good friends all around. However, when Henry Bear and his best friend, Stanley, head off to town to find the perfect tree, nothing at the farm stand or at the school yard meets Henry's approval. No, the only tree perfect enough for Henry is the one being raffled off by the church. Henry is positive that the tree is meant to be his -- so positive that he spends all of his money buying raffle tickets, but Stanley is worried. What will they do if they don't win the raffle?

More than twenty-five years after first introducing Henry Bear to children everywhere with Henry Bear's Park, acclaimed illustrator David McPhail returns once again to Henry Bear's world with an endearing new story about the true meaning of Christmas.
