"Dear Santa" by Kathryn White and Polona Lovsin (Little Tiger Press)

Now here's a brilliant idea. Mix a fantastic christmas story with a superb letter writing kit (that's not just handy for those long, long, LONG lists to Santa, but can also be used to thank all those lovely relatives that spoil you rotten at christmas with a lovely festive letter) and you've got 'Dear Santa' from Kathryn White and Polona Lovsin.

When a christmas letter goes astray and is found by a cuddly little bear, an adventurous journey begins to make sure the letter finds its way to Santa Claus in time for christmas.

Bear enlists the help of his best friend Rabbit, and soon they're crunching through the snow on their ambitious mission.

Polona Lovsin's illustrations are absolutely perfect for this time of year, and Kathryn White weaves a tale of high adventure, keeping things suitable for a range of ages, particularly the very young.

Really great idea this, and yet another top quality christmas book from those lovely tigery folk.

Charlotte's best bit: She's completely head over heels in love with Rabbit. Awww.

Daddy's favourite bit: What a stroke of genius! Great little notelets and envelops perfect for letters to santa (oh and mum and dad, grandma and grandad, nanny and dodo and everyone else too!)
