Natalie's finished her Christmas list. It's really quite perfect, with one little twist: a remote control scooter, some candy to share and, if it's no trouble, a big polar bear.

But a fun-loving bear as a pet? He's very big and always hungry. And he scares the pants off the mail lady. How will Natalie ever convince the grown-ups that, despite all his shenanigans, a polar bear really is no trouble?
