Ho ho how do you choose?

Obviously at this time of the year the shop is looking, well, Christmasy! We have a roaring fireplace in the window, sparkly snowflakes and one or two books.

Picking our Christmas-related books was tricky because there are so many to choose from. What do you look for in a Christmas book? Not everyone wants a traditional tale, but you need to include them in your collection, so what to go for?

Well, this is my top 5:

 I have a very well-loved copy of my own, which I will never part with. The illustrations are stunning, classic Ahlberg and each little pocket contains a treasure to delight readers young and old.

A lovely re-telling of the nativity, with glorious illustrations.

 Blooming marvelous! A humourous look at the life of Father Christmas.

 It’s just funny ok? Pants are always amusing.

A classic tale, perfectly narrated, with delicately drawn illustrations.

We have all of these books in-store plus a whole lot more, including books perfect for gifts or just snuggling up on the sofa with. Happy reading.
