I am a firm believer that Christmas should start and stay in December. However, it’s never too early to discover Christmas books and think about potential presents and this book has most certainly made it onto my present giving list this year.
Mia’s dad can’t make it home for Christmas so she tries to find a way to at least get a Christmas card to him. After all, what makes Christmas special is family…no matter where they are. Enter a mysterious postbox and an unforgettable adventure that whisks Mia across snow-covered mountains and exotic streets lit by paper stars.
The illustrations by Karl James Mountford capture the romantic spirit of Christmas beautifully. The colours are understated and not ‘in your face’ which adds to the beautiful feel of this book. There is lots to discover on each page. Especially the different peek-through pages and hidden flaps make this a very special Christmas book.
Another gem of a picture book published by Little Tiger Press. Written by Maudie Powell-Tuck and illustrated by Karl James Mountford.
