Description of this Book

A rhyming 48-page illustrated children's book aimed at ages 4-7. The Hunt for Polar One is a story about a boy's frantic search for his beloved bear which has disappeared at bedtime. He is terrified his bear may have been stolen by a mean creature and he must be found before night fall. His brother takes control of the situation and shares a secret - a magic carpet he got from Grandpa - which they use on the hunt for the precious bear. They visit the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus, asking each if they have seen the bear on their travels. When they return home empty handed, all is not lost when Poppy the dog reveals the whereabouts of Polar One.
