Reviews

I wouldn't change a thing about this book. It's ridiculously sweet, has a lovely build up with just the right amount of angst, and then a superb happy ending. Fully recommended, it's one you won't mind reading every day in the run up to December 25th. The Book Bag Christmas can't come soon enough in this sweet and charming story... - Lancashire Evening Post This really is Christmas enchantment, small furry animal style. - Jill R Bennett Gentle illustrations accompany this simple tale of friendship, working together and, above all, not losing hope. This lovely picture book reminds readers that Christmas is a time for believing in all things magical. - Booktrust The illustrations are heartmeltingly cute! - Old Socks and Lollipops This story of belief and friendship is packed with plenty of surprises and is the perfect book to reassure young children that Santa will find them! - Words for Life This is an adorable, sweet little picture book... This would make a lovely, magical gift. - The Bookworm Baby
