Booky Advent Calendar Day 10: "Waiting for Santa" by Steve Metzger and Alison Edgson (Little Tiger Press)

A plucky crew of animal pals come up with a brilliant idea - they're going to stay up in the snowy woods and wait for the big man himself. "Waiting for Santa" by Steve Metzger and Alison Edgson...
Christmas wouldn't be christmas without a gorgeous snowy animal tale or two, and although we've seen quite a few so far on our Booky Advent Calendar, there's always room for one more.

Steve Metzger and Alison Edgson's "Waiting for Santa" tells the story of Hedgehog, Badger, Mouse, Mole and Bear who come up with the perfect plan to ensure they meet Santa himself.

The friends put on their warmest hats and scarves and venture out into the deep dark woods.

There, together, they decorate a gorgeous christmas tree that Santa will be able to see from miles around. Will it be enough to make their christmas truly special and magical? Sometimes you need a special christmas wish to help your dreams come true.

A gorgeous bedtime festive treat with Alison Edgson's warm and cuddly animal illustrations ensures this'll be a fab book to tuck under the tree!

Charlotte's favourite bit: Little mouse seems to steal the show for her, such an adorable little squeaker!

Daddy's favourite bit: A lovely little tale of friendship and hoping, wishing and believing that Santa really will stop by for a special visit.
