Doing Christmas by Sarah Garland

Frances Lincoln are delighted to reissue Sarah Garland's classic picture book series featuring a warm and very down-to-earth family as they go about their daily life.

Doing Christmas follows the family as they get ready for Granny's Christmas visit; doing the shopping, making the pudding and digging up the tree. But will they have everything ready in time for Granny's arrival?
