Each year Grandpa Figgyworth has continued his tradition of leaving notes and trinkets for the villagers of the North Pole on a special day that has come to be known as The Festival of the Elves. When Holly Figgyworth and her brother Noel decide to spread the custom elsewhere, they are advised to seek permission from the Elder Elf Council. Having done so, they are granted permission to visit one family and they chance upon the family Puddington. Each day leading up to Christmas they leave themed notes for the family, who enter into the fun with great joy, and continue to do so each year, reminding each other of Grandpa's words: "The magic around you is the magic you make."

This is the type of book that I would have adored when I was a child as it really does capture the spirit and magic of Christmas. It would be perfect to share as a family each Christmas Eve and to be passed down to future generations. It actually seems quite relevant this year of the pandemic as it shows how much fun the family can have together inventing things to do.

The illustrations are charming as they match the text well and contain lots of detail so that the reader wants to keep on looking. I especially liked the little map of the North Pole at the beginning and end of the book.

A delightful Christmas story.

I loved this story! It would be the perfect bedtime story book for the run-up to Christmas. It's an easy to understand story - the language isn't too complicated yet still manages to be descriptive - and the illustrations are colourful and lively, so there's plenty to talk about with your little ones. I like the message about spreading happiness to others and how happiness and kindness is catching.... Read Full Review
