December Book of the Month

We just had to go with a festive book for December and they don’t come much better than this!

It’s Christmas Eve and Theo – left at home with a babysitter – sees an odd-looking star out of his window and decides to make a wish. He wishes that he had some friends to keep him company. Moments later the  tin soldier, the robin, the rocking horse and the angel begin to disentangle themselves from the tree behind him, ready to wreak a little havoc… Following their orders, Theo takes them outside to help them find what they need, before they in return transform his Christmas.

This is a delightful book from one of our favourite children’s authors, Katherine Rundell.  Along with the beautiful illustrations by Emily Sutton, this book is not only perfect for Christmas but for any other day of the year too.
