Synopsis

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. Whether they are gardening, swimming, picnicking or going to playschool, doing the washing, the shopping, enjoying Christmas or a tea party, Mum, daughter, baby and dog are always rushing around, getting things done and having lots of fun. 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?

Reviews

Lively illustrations and minimal text, allowing for plenty improvisation by the adult raconteur, map the chaotic day-to-day life of a harassed single mother, her two toddlers and lugubrious dog. Spectator
