Christmas with Morris and Boris

By Bernard Wiseman

 2013-12-18 16.53.59

Boris is a bear and Morris is a moose. Morris, it could be said, is not very world savvy. He doesn’t even know who Santa Claus is or that Christmas is a holiday. Boris tries to be patient with Morris but Morris is a bit silly.  He thinks that the stockings are hung up to dry by the fire. And then he thinks that Santa will come and put on the stockings. He also thinks that they should not be reindeer but snowdeer.

While cute, this story does not have any redeeming Christmas theme. It will entertain an early grade school child; it will just tell them about receiving from Santa – not about being good to receive from Santa or about doing good deeds.

This book is part of a series that features Morris. Some books have both Morris and Boris and some just Morris.   The most popular seems to be Morris the Moose.

In this day and age when authors work very hard to get publicity, it seems so odd that there is so little information about Bernard Wiseman. Granted, he died in 1995 but he is the author and illustrator of 41 books, most of which are still in print.  I could not even find a picture of him.  He will remain a man of mystery.

Thanks for reading!
