When Granny Saved Christmas by Julia Hubery

Bubble and Squeak are off to Granny's for Christmas. Only how will Santa find them? They try leaving a map and sending Santa a HUGE letter... But when they finally get to Granny's house, there's no chimney! How will Father Christmas get in? It's up to Granny to save the day - and Christmas! A warm and funny tale to reassure any child spending their first Christmas away from home. This charming picture book will calm any worries about how Father Christmas will find them - or how he enters a house with no fireplace! With adorable illustrations from Caroline Pedler (Don't Wake the Bear, Hare! and It's Potty Time!) and a sparkly glittery cover, it's the perfect Christmas present for grandchildren and grannies alike! For more Christmas stories from Little Tiger Press, check out Is It Christmas Yet? (Jane Chapman) and A Very Merry Christmas (Maudie Powell-Tuck and Gill Guile)!
