December 17th and The Christmas Book for Children
I'm not sure where I heard or read about this book, but it sounded so special that it had to be bought.
It's Christmas Eve and the house in Exeter Street is crammed full of guests- and more keep arriving. But Mrs Mistletoe squeezes them into every nook and cranny, the dresser, the bath and even a baby in the kitchen sink.
My favourite illustration, just the sort of page to linger over and point out all the people sleeping in the house
This book will be enjoyed by the grandchildren in a year or two I think.
