The Silly Satsuma by Allan Plenderleith


The Silly Satsuma by Allan Plenderleith

When Eric Greenbogle wakes up on Christmas morning there are no presents under the tree - because Eric has been a BAD BOY! All he finds is a single bright orange satsuma. I don't want a silly satsuma! What can a silly satsuma do? But this is no ordinary satsuma as Father Christmas has given it magical powers. The satsuma springs to life and tries to show Eric that being bad is definitely NOT GOOD!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
