Booky Advent Calendar Day 11 - "Surprise! The Book that Keeps on Giving!" by Jonathan Litton and Fhiona Galloway (Little Tiger Press)

Surprise! The Book that Keeps on Giving

Written by Jonathan Litton

Illustrated by Fhiona Galloway

Published by Little Tiger Press

A riotous game of pass the parcel with a christmassy feel and the cutest little penguin you could ever hope to meet! That's part of the surprise in store for little ones as they explore "Surprise! The Book that Keeps on Giving!" by Jonathan Litton and Fhiona Galloway. This chunky but funky board book slowly reveals the story as each of the animals hopes to win a prize, with each layer peeled off each animal comes up with their own ideas on how to use their bit of wrapping paper (which is quite a neat thing to see - any parent who has ever organised pass the parcel for their little ones usually knows that a fairly compact parcel can fill an entire living room with paper after just one round!)

We won't reveal what the final surprise is but it caused whoops of glee from us! What a great little book!

Charlotte's best bit: Some fantastic ideas on how to use your christmas wrapping! Cool!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A nicely presented little book with a fantastic surprise in store at the end! Perfect stocking filling fun!
