Joe and his parents have moved to a new country, but things take a strange turn from the moment they arrive. Not only does Joe's suitcase disappear, he seems to have ended up with a polar bear instead! So much for trying to blend in - not much chance of that with an enormous bear in tow.
Meet Mister P - the world's most helpful(ish) polar bear.
