Katie's London Christmas by James Mayhew

Christmas is a magical time of year, when absolutely anything incredible can happen. So when Katie and Jack are woken up late on Christmas Eve by a loud sneeze, little do they realise that they are about to embark on the most amazing evening! Soon they are flying high across London, over snow-dusted landmarks, through the star-scattered sky with the one and only Father Christmas, in his sleigh, with his magical reindeer! But can they help Father Christmas to deliver all his presents and be back in time for Christmas morning? This story is illustrated with James's extraordinarily beautiful artwork and features some of London's best sights, including: Big Ben Buckingham Palace Covent Garden Trafalgar Square And many more landmarks The foiled cover will add that extra bit of Christmas sparkle to make the book utterly irresistible!


Wonderful... magical... the foiled cover and magical illustrations of London in all her festive glory make this book the perfect Christmas gift. Parents in Touch

Much to see in each page spread that children will be enthralled and wrapped up in this book for many readings... brilliant stuff. Read It Daddy!
