Are you starting to get that warm cuddly feeling about Christmas yet? No? Well OK it is only October 2nd I'll grant you but today there's an extra special yuletide feeling on the blog as another Christmas cracker pops through our letterbox early, to be added to the roster of awesome Christmas books to add to your shopping list.

"Tooth Fairy's Christmas" by Peter (I'm nearly as busy as Santa this year!) Bently and Garry (No pooping dinosaurs inside - guaranteed!) Parsons have come up with a belter of a story featuring not one but TWO busy mythical folk.

You see Santa isn't the only one who has to work through the holiday, the poor Tooth Fairy does too, but while on her way to retrieve Tim Tucker's first lost tooth, The Tooth Fairy gets blown off course into a huge snowdrift. Thankfully Santa spots the poor waif in the snow, and offers to help get her back on course. Santa could also do with a helping hand so together Fairy and Father Christmas soon make short work of the evening's rounds, with more than a little bit of magic thrown in.

Stories like this are so warm and snuggly that you can almost picture the first flakes of snow falling on Christmas Eve, taste that first sip of mulled wine, and imagine turning the living room into a paper mountain opening all your presents on the big day. Charlotte is currently campaigning for The Tooth Fairy to become a regular fixture at Christmas because she thinks she does all the hard work anyway!

Charlotte's best bit: Santa and Fairy ALMOST getting caught! Eeks!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A lovely festive story as warm and snuggly as a reindeer onesie! Love it!
