The boys and I have been transfixed by this delightful Christmas book for two days now. The storyline is charming; the descriptions, pleasing; the illustrations, sheer pleasure to look at. We were absolutely glued to the pages as we read through it.
Think orphans, trains, snow, small towns a-glow for Christmas, longing, a beautifully lit toy shop, loneliness, breakfast sausages, and an ending that warms the very cockles of your heart. What a pleasure!
