Little Robin's Christmas by Jan Fearnley


Little Robin's Christmas by Jan Fearnley

From the author of the Mr Wolf series comes this charming Christmas tale. It's a week before Christmas and Little Robin has a warm vest for each frosty day. But he meets seven chilly friends and soon has no vests left for himself. Poor Robin huddles on a roof ...until Father Christmas comes to the rescue and, as a reward for his kindness, gives Little Robin a red vest to keep forever. The perfect festive read for kids who loved How Many Sleeps Till Christmas. Destined to become a family classic that children aged 3 and up will love. Little Robin Red Vest was described as 'having the simple profundity of a Beatles' song' by TES. Look out for Jan's other books: Mr Wolf and the Three Bears, Mr Wolf and the Enormous Turnip, and, Mr Wolf and the Pancake.
