Zoe and Beans: Zoe's Christmas List by Mick Inkpen, Chloe Inkpen
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The excitement of Christmas is nicely captured in this story of resourceful Zoe and Beans, her faithful companion. Zoe doesn’t want to be surprised at Christmas; she knows exactly what she wants and to make sure she gets it she takes her list right to the North Pole where Father Christmas is sure to find it. Zoe’s list is simple. It has only one thing on it. But Zoe’s eventful and snowy journey gives her a different view of what really matters to her… A touching story with a beautiful fold-out illustration at its centre.
