Book Description

The amazing, talking Bluebear Brother. It was the gift every child wanted - including Benjamin's own daughter. But when the bear was broken right out of the box, there were more tears than smiles Christmas morning. Still, for some strange reason Benjamin couldn't bring himself to return it . . . and then something magical began to happen.

K.C. SCOTT, who lives in Oregon with an assortment of critters, both human and otherwise, is the author of DOG FOOD AND DIAMONDS.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT A CHILDREN"S BOOK December 21, 2011
By Jane
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the cover this book looks likea children's book, but it is not! We started reading this with my 7 yr. old and had to quickly stop as they start talking about how Santa is not real. The cover is very deceiving!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Comforting Tale for Adults November 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first found this book I thought it was a children's story. But as I read it I realized it was not. My reason is because in this story parents tell a child there is no Santa Claus. I don't personally think that is a very good idea. Also this book has a bit of suspense and there is an accident that might be too scary for children. Basically the story is about a bear that is broken and needs to be returned to the store. But instead the father decides to keep the bear. He talks to the bear all the time and realizes the bear is magical and while it doesn't talk back it is watching everything and keeping the family safe. The ending is quite good even though it took me a few minutes to get it. I'd recommend this for adults or teenagers but not for small children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, quick read--You'll love it. November 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very nicely-written feel-good story which is appropriate for any age. The author does a good job of storytelling, and the tale moves along nicely toward its delightful conclusion. This one will leave you smiling. Read it when you need a quick pick-me-up. It will leave you delighted.

This was a free download. Nothing special but for a free download, it is worth it. I wouldn't pay for it.

Very disappointed that I wasn't warned about exposing Santa Claus not being real. Thankfully my son was half asleep when I almost spilled the beans.

2.0 out of 5 stars weak story telling
reads like an awkward first attempt at story telling. Neither my child or I could get into it. I had to change some language as I was reading it to make it flow better.
