Booky Advent Calendar Day 2: "Tales from Christmas Wood" by Suzy Senior and James Newman Gray (Lion Hudson)

Christmas story anthologies are one of the nicest things about this time of year. Nothing beats snuggling down with a book that collects together adorable tales which are totally more-ish (like that sneaky tube of Pringles you keep dipping into that's supposed to be saved for Christmas).
Meet the inhabitants of "Christmas Wood", Badger, Fidgety Fox, Owl, The Rabbit Family, Tiny Mouse and Robin, who are all busily preparing for the festive season so there's lots to do and everyone's ready to pitch in.
Some animals are busily preparing wonderful christmas fare (with rather more eating going on than preparing). Other animals are preparing for a wonderful yuletide family get-together and as the first flakes of snow begin to fall, Christmas Wood is one of the cosiest places to be!
Five festive stories are collected together in this wonderful book, glorious to read aloud with truly atmospheric and wonderful illustrations throughout.
Nab a copy of "Tales from Christmas Wood" or put it at the top of your list to Santa!
Charlotte's favourite bit: Cosying up with the Rabbits!
Daddy's favourite bit: A glorious collection of christmas stories, delightfully written and illustrated.
