Booky Advent Calendar Day 8 - "Ollie's Christmas Reindeer" by Nicola Killen (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)

Wow, how did we get to Day 8 on our Booky Advent Calendar so quickly?
Here's Nicola Killen with a magical festive story about Ollie. When she hears a faint jingling coming from the forest, Ollie rushes outside to see what's causing the gorgeous tinkling noise.

In the depths of the forest, she meets a lost reindeer and decides to reunite the poor little fellah with his family. The two set off on a wonderful journey that neither will forget.

Oh there are so many, so MANY gorgeous scenes in this book and both of us really loved the muted tones (the book's artwork is glorious in greyscale with lovely touches of red for noses and cheeks here and there. It really is a stunner!)

Once again the sort of christmassy book that just begs to be read while wrapped up warm and cosy while nipping at a nice glass of egg nog or hot chocolate.

"Ollie's Christmas Reindeer" by Nicola Killen is out now, published by Simon and Schuster Children's Books.
