Reviews

Father Christmas is depressed, but mouse is on the case and before long he rediscovers the pleasure of giving and sets off to do what he usually does on Christmas Eve. Again, the true meaning of gifts is explored in an accomplished story, complemented by matching artwork from a new illustrator. Sonia Benster, The Bookseller Conveys the need to share perfectly... Good moral behind the activities of the selfish mouse who then gave gifts! Scenjive, Parent Colourful and lively Scenjive, Parent I really like the interaction between the characters Sam, Parent It was very colourful, caring and fun Sam, Parent Peer Reviews A timeless quality... which could well make it the sort of book you read every Christmas. Bookbag A classic story about the joy of giving. Child Education
