Have you heard the news? Ryan T. Higgins has delivered us yet another fantastic Bruce book. This time one to get us ready for the upcoming holiday season. Santa Bruce was released on Sept. 4, and is perfect for ages 3+.
We’ve been Bruce fans since reading the very first book, Mother Bruce. The books are always such a delight to read. In the latest addition to the series, Bruce finds himself a victim of mistaken identity. While out shoveling show, he was mistaken as Santa Claus. Bruce being the grumpy, yet big-hearted bear he is, made sure to warm the hearts of all the children that year. Of course with the help of his “children” and their friends.
About the book
Bruce is a lot of things. He is a bear, a grump, and 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.
