The Christmas Wish by Libby Hamilton


The Christmas Wish by Libby Hamilton

On Christmas Eve the young animals gather in Mrs Owl's bookshop to hear the story of the Silver Fox, who grants the Christmas wish of every good boy and girl. We see five Christmas wishes granted, and then the final one bringing the Silver Fox himself to the Christmas feast! Caroline Anstey's joyful illustrations make this a Christmas treat sure to be treasured by all who receive it.
