A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month November 2018
Christmas is coming and there is war in the shops! In every supermarket in the town all the Christmas treats are being smashed up as soon as they get into the shops. Beautifully decorated cakes and biscuits have been sent flying and even Christmas puddings have been heaved off the shelves. Who’s the spoilsport who is ruining Christmas? The trusty Mince Spies are sent in to watch the shelves and they soon discover the surprising culprits! It takes the intervention of Santa Claus himself to make everyone feel better and for Christmas to become fun again! A thoroughly ridiculous and hugely enjoyable Christmas adventure.
Julia Eccleshare's Picks for November 2018:
Mince Spies by Sophie Corrigan
Hampstead the Hamster by Michael Rosen
The Antlered Ship by Dashka Slater
Atlas Adventures: Wonders of the World by Ben Handicott
Helen Oxenbury: A Life in Illustration by Leonard S. Marcus
The Dog that Saved Christmas by Nicola Davies
Who or what is destroying all the Christmas treats in the supermarkets? Santa sends his Mince Spies on a secret mission to uncover the culprits. With puff-pastry jetpacks, shortcrust walkie-talkies and squirty whipped cream they foil the villains - with a bit of help from Santa.
