Fuzz and his family live at the zoo. Fuzz's dad is a blood-thirsty tiger, his mum a mud-cake-making rhinoceros, his sister a tap-dancing giraffe and his brothers a pair of somersaulting monkeys. Fuzz makes great pocket-money pretending to be a polar bear, and at the end of each day his family take off their costumes. Well, most of the time, anyway.

Fuzz's pa loves being a polar bear so much he wants to be one! And when he wins two tickets for a cruise to the Arctic, things don't quite turn out as planned! Who is the mysterious girl with pointed ears? What are those strange jingle bells Fuzz keeps hearing? How can two part-time polar bears cope with real ones? Will Fuzz and Pa have to eat raw fish forever? And do reindeer really fly ...

Find out what happens at the North Pole with Fuzz and his pa on this amazing Arctic adventure in the Wacky Families series.
