The World Book Day Monster
Authors: Adam Guillain , Charlotte Guillain Illustrator: Ada Grey
I adore the idea of a story about world book day, and this did not dissapoint. My daughter has shown everyone she knows and the story is simple yet compelling. We'll definitely be reading it year on year.

My baby girl loves these books, this dog one is really nice  Once she is older  we will be able to look for the mouse on every picture. Simple but lovely book series.

Each Peach Pear Plum
Authors: Allan Ahlberg , Janet Ahlberg Illustrator: Janet Ahlberg
Apparently this was a favourite of mine when I was a child, so it takes a pretty special book to still capture children's attention some 30 years later. But that's exactly what it did when u read it to my daughter.. Some of the characters she hadn't heard of, and in truth maybe they are less well known by today's children but she really enjoyed this book and we've read it multiple times now. It's a classic.

Emily Brown and Father Christmas
Author: Cressida Cowell Illustrator: Neal Layton
I'm writing this from the perspective of somone who's never read any of the other Emily brown stories. Perhaps if I had I would have enjoyed this book a bit more. It wasn't a bad story, my daughter enjoyed it but I felt it lacked originality and unfortunately wasn't the warm cosy Christmas story I was hoping it was going to be. That said it was still an enjoyable read around the Christmas season.

Dear Santa
Author: Rod Campbell
My family love dear zoo, so this book was a must have. Its a great Christmas story for little ones and we even saw the stage show of it last year. I recommend if you like dear zoo.
