Friend for Christmas by Lauren St. John

A full colour red Early Reader story about a dog who comes home for Christmas from BLUE PETER BOOK AWARD-winning author, Lauren St John. Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books perfect for building confidence in new readers and reluctant readers. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey. If Luka could have anything in the world for Christmas, it would be to see Buddy again, his red and grey mongrel with one floppy ear. But Buddy has been missing for months. Then again, sometimes, at Christmas time, wishes really do come true.
