Brilliant contemporary children's literature .

I love it so much that it was so brilliant and my kids loved him most of all.

Wonderful a story about the sad secrets of Christmas traditions and two creatures during the holidays . It is a very festive and touching and moving and has a happy ending ! Perfect for the season to reading!

Story with animals and Father Christmas, which is good for winter, and great big pictures with colourful and painting.!
