The Long Journey Home is based on the bestselling book, Guess How Much I Love You, is published by Walker Books and written by Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jeram. The book, published in 53 languages, has sold 32 million copies globally and in 2014 celebrated its 20th anniversary.

The animated series relates the adventures of the Nutbrown Hares and their friends with the same endearing charm and love that has made the book a timeless story time favourite. The holiday special episode follows the huge success of the classic preschool series, which has been broadcast in over 180 countries.

On a bright and sparkling Christmas Eve, Little Nutbrown Hare and his friends Little Field Mouse, Little Redwood Fox and Little Grey Squirrel are frolicking happily in the snow-covered meadow when they stumble across a baby brown bear who is lost and sad. Determined to return their little friend home to his family in time for Christmas, the young heroes venture bravely through the woods and across the valley into the unknown.

This epic adventure will touch the hearts of young and old alike, as our friends let nothing stand in the way of reuniting Little Brown Bear with his family, before making their own way home. Throughout this delightful journey we are reminded that the greatest gift of Christmas is being with the ones you love.
