We loved it. – Teacher It's lots of fun and beautifully illustrated. Sure to brighten up any Christmas shelf. – Parent This story is engaging and the envelopes and letters fold out making this book hugely appealing to children (and adult sized children). The quality of the paper is wonderful and I wasn’t worried about the envelopes or paper getting torn or crumpled. The illustrations are lovely with lots of expression and details that you can discuss to add further layers to the story. A lovely book for young children. - Parent This is a fabulous story for little ones and families to enjoy together in the run up to Christmas. My children loved hearing this story, and I quite enjoyed reading it to them too! - Parent Lovely book with lots of flaps and the such to open and read the letters.
