"There once was a bear, a moose and a beaver who loved to celebrate Christmas. One Christmas Eve, the three friends were so caught up with their holiday preparations that they forgot about the most important decoration of all: a tree! So they ran out to the forest to find the perfect sweet-smelling, soft-needled, just-the-right-size tree! But there was one problem: the bear, who loved all trees, wouldn't let his friends cut it down. How could they possibly enjoy Christmas without a tree? Starring a charming cast of characters, Nicholas Oldland's light-hearted, contemporary fable celebrates the joys-- and happy compromises-- of the holiday season."-- Provided by publisher.
