Beautiful illustrations capture all the joy of Christmas.
Melrose and Croc: Together At Christmas by Emma Chichester-clarkMelrose is a Golden Labrador and Croc is a tiny crocodile. The pair live together and share everyday experiences familiar to young children. This story tells the tale of how the friends first meet on Christmas Eve. Melrose has just moved into a new flat and Croc has come to the city to meet Father Christmas.
'Two irresistible new characters from the creator of the popular Blue Kangaroo series.'
'A heart-warming tale of how friendships begin... This book is a wonderful tactile experience, from the shimmery glittery cover... to the gentle watercolours inside, which are printed on the creamiest of papers.'
'It delights children but adults will appreciate the period evocation of the festive-season cities and the off-season seaside.'
'Incredibly touching story.'
'Gorgeous Christmassy story about friendship.'
'You don't have to get too sentimental to find something special...The light in the illustrations makes this book all the more magical.'
'A beautifully illustrated and heart-warming tale.'
'This author/illustrator goes from strength to strength... Mouth-watering illustrations, ideal text, two mightily engaging characters - altogether the star on top of the tree.'
