I bought this book originally when my son was a baby and decided, now that I have two children to got another copy for when they grow up and leave home. Every year we read the letters in the run up to Christmas. My children have always been beguiled by the antics of the North Polar Bear. This is a very special edition which is sure to be treasured by generations to come.
