LoveReading View on Oh Christmas Tree

You can rely on Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet to put a fresh and funny take on the festive season. The creators of Supertato have another surprising, comic central character in this super-silly story: a rogue Christmas tree! All the other houses have a decorated Christmas tree in their window – the one at number 32 is pink – but at number 34 the tree has put its foot down and is refusing to play its part. The baubles are in despair, pleading with it to get into its pot and play its part, to no avail.  Fortunately, the tree is as vain as it is stubborn, and not too bright either, and the decorations find a way to trick it into behaving. Where else will you be able to enjoy the sight of baubles and tinsel chasing a Christmas tree round the house? Told in rollicking rhyme this is a Christmas must-have.

Oh Christmas Tree Synopsis

It's Christmas time and every tree on Sidney Street is beautifully decorated - except for one! This lively tree would rather sit at the table and pull crackers on Christmas day, than stand in a corner wearing glittery decorations! But the little gang of Bauble, Belle and the Tinsel Snake need the tree to behave so they can fulfil their decorating destinies. Will they manage to persuade Tree to stand still and be decorated? They just might, thanks to Belle's crafty brainwave. . .

Oh, Christmas Tree! is the wonderful second Christmas title from the creative and bestselling pair behind Snowball, Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. This festively fun story is full of their usual warmth and wit, with brilliant characters and a very funny rhyming text.
