Synopsis

Just Right for Christmas by Birdie Black

One snowy Christmas eve, the king buys some soft red cloth to make a cloak for the princess - little does he know that the left-over cloth will be used to make presents for many more of the kingdom's inhabitants, right down to the last teeny bit of cloth made into a scarf, which is just right for the smallest mouse to protect him from the winter chill.

About the Author

Birdie Black (Author) Birdie Black, the author of Just Right for Christmas and Warthog, read lots of children's books as a child, and didn't really ever stop. As well as writing the odd book, she runs a small, independent children's publishing company... Oh, all right: it's Kate Wilson. Rosalind Beardshaw (Illustrator) Rosalind Beardshaw is the illustrator of Just Right for Christmas, Just Right for Two, The Fairiest Fairy, Box, Warthog, National Trust: A Walk in the Countryside series, The Christmas Fairy and I Love You. She has illustrated many picture books for children including Mole's in Love, written by David Bedford, A Tale of Two Goats by Tom Barber and Lulu Loves the Library by Anna McQuinn. She has also illustrated a couple of her own stories: Grandma's Beach and Grandpa's Surprise. She loves creating new characters, especially if they can be based loosely/wholly on her shaggy lurcher, Basil. She lives in York with her partner, Al, daughter, Iris, and young son, Freddie, who loves watching Calamity Jane. Who knows what Doris Day's influence will be...?
