A fun and festive reimagining of the classic American folk song, "We’re Going on a Bear Hunt," made famous by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.

Three children are off on a hunt for the perfect Christmas present! But first they’ve got to get through the spiky Christmas trees, a herd of hungry reindeer, some noisy carol singers, and a very busy toy store! But there are SO MANY toys . . . will they ever find the perfect present?

This joyful stocking stuffer has zingy neon ink on the cover and throughout, and is filled with cute characters and Christmas surprises! Repeated phrases and sound words make this an interactive picture book, great for sharing with the whole family at Christmas.

Fans of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt will like the holiday twist found in We’re Going on a Present Hunt. The use of bright pink, teal, and purple are striking color choices for a Winter Holiday book but they were very appealing. These three friends pass by many holiday activities while off to get a present. Based on the title I was a bit worried that it might be centered around the characters wanting presents for themselves. It was a happy surprise at the end who they were getting the gift for. A small detail that I wish was included in the illustrations is the children paying for the present. Children’s sense of right and wrong is developing at this age and I could see a child worried that they had just taken the gift or thinking it was fine if they did. Overall, it was a fun read following the same pattern as We’re Going on a Bear Hunt which will be appealing in its familiarity while also being new to read.
