Who Wrote It?

Maria Farrer lives in a house in the middle of a field in Somerset with her husband, four daughters and a black Labrador. She used to live on a small farm in New Zealand with a flock of sheep, a herd of cows, two badly-behaved pigs and a budgie that sat on her head while she wrote. She trained as a speech therapist and teacher and later she completed an MA in Writing for Young People. Maria loves language and enjoys reading and writing books for children of all ages. Maria loves the outdoors, so when she is not writing she loves to walk, run, cycle, climb, and ski. She has a passion for hills and mountains.

What's It About?

PREPARE TO MEET THE WORLD'S MOST HELPFUL(ISH) POLAR BEAR. Arthur is understandably surprised when Mr P turns up at his door expecting to stay: Mr P is a huge polar bear with small black eyes, and long sharp teeth. Fortunately for Arthur and his family Mr P is polite and friendly and his stay as a guest brings about all sorts of changes for the better. Having to look after him makes Arthur see things differently while Mr P’s uncritical, tolerant presence is a calming influence on Arthur’s brother Liam, who finds it difficult to act the way others do. This is all mixed up in a funny, often surreal story about the challenges of managing a polar bear at school, and with a sub-plot concerning a tense football match.

Zak from Farsley Springbank Primary School:

This book was really good because you thought the polar bear was going to be bad but then he’s actually really nice. It was funny beacuase Mr P is quite clumsy but he’s quite serious as well. The ending is a bit sad but it’s still a good read.

Madi from Whinmoor St Paul's Primary :

I enjoyed Me and Mister P because it makes it quite clear that every one is different on the inside as well as on the outside. Take Liam for example, he is autistic but he shouldn't be picked on just because he is autistic. I would give an age range of 6-12. I only rated 4 stars because it could be about something other than football at some points.

The reason I loved Mister P was that it had a lot of humour and the characters were amazing.I did have a question that was never answered - did Liam have autism? It was sad at the end though.He was a very nice polar bear. I gave this book 5 because it had my favourite sport and other reasons.
