"A flurry of festive magic and fun in picture book form"
Sprinkled with exhilarating onomatopoeic words to relish aloud - the “thwump!” of a snowball, the “shlump” of a tumbling avalanche, the “flooooof!” of a pillow-like plunge of snow - this charming be-careful-what-you-wish-for picture book radiates wintry wonder, and is a dream to read together.
Tucked up in their cosy home, a family of bears are looking forward their best Christmas ever. Decorations have set their cabin a-twinkling, delicious smells waft from the oven, and the only thing that could perfect the scene is a sprinkling of snow, so little Button wishes for that very magic to happen. And then it does! Snow begins to fall, and fall, and fall…and fall! So much so, they’re snowed in, the chimney is blocked, and the bear cubs fear Santa won’t be able to deliver the presents.
As ever, author-illustrator Jane Chapman’s style is warm, inviting and populated with loveable characters little readers will root for, not least when they strive to save Christmas.
