Product description

Shortlisted for the UKLA 2018 Book Award.

SLAM! That’s the sound of Arthur’s front door banging. He’s had enough! He’s running away! He’s fed up with his whole family – especially his stupid brother Liam. Why can’t Liam just be normal? Every day he’s having a meltdown, or humming really loud, or yelling, or spoiling Arthur’s day. But – WAIT! What’s that on the doorstep? It’s a polar bear, holding a suitcase. It’s huge. It’s white. It’s terrifying. And it’s come to stay! At first, the bear – Mister P – gets a rather frosty reception. But soon this furry buddy is helping the whole family to chill out…
