Me and Mister P By Maria Farrer, Illustrated by Daniel Rieley
Arthur is fed up with his younger brother Liam getting all the attention from their parents just because he's a little bit different from other children. Arthur just wants a normal family and a normal life, where he can play soccer and hang out with friends -- without Liam always being SO embarrassing.

But just when Arthur can't take it anymore, Mister P, a polar bear with a suitcase, shows up on Arthur’s doorstep... so Arthur invites him in. Though Mister P is enormous and clumsy, and a little bit unpredictable, it's clear he's not dangerous. In fact, he seems to be there to be a friend, and immediately makes life way more fun! But is Mister P there for good? And can he help Arthur get what he wants?

This funny, fresh, accessible story is full of heart and tackles themes of autism, jealousy, friendship, and family -- and will make readers wish for their own polar bear ally!
