There are times when only a polar bear will do . . .
Our flat isn't big, but at least it's high up. I can stand on the balcony and look up at the stars. I reckon Dad's out there somewhere looking up too. And I bet he's thinking about me. I do love Mum and Leo but it's hard work looking after both of them and sometimes I wish things were a bit easier.
What's NOT easy is a ridiculous, annoying, in-your-face, POLAR BEAR moving in! I mean, what use is HE going to be? I've tried to get rid of him, but he seems very determined to stay . . .
Meet Ruby, and her new (kind of) friend, Mister P . . . the world's most helpful(ish) polar bear!
Packed with gorgeous illustrations throughout, this is a story full of humour and heart which will appeal to readers everywhere.

Review quote

I just wanted to keep reading this hilarious book. * Minnie Barber, NG Kids * The subtle inclusion of this huge bear by the whole family . . . which in itself is very funny . . . is also why the story works. I was hooked. Highly recommended. * School Librarian * Praise for Me and Mister P:
This had me charmed: a hugely appealing story about a polar bear who unexpectedly comes to stay. A fresh and funny story of family and friendship with black and white illustrations throughout. * The Bookseller *
