Booky Advent Calendar 2017 Day 8 - "Lucy's Magical Surprise" by Anne Booth and Sophy Williams (OUP / Oxford Children's Books)

We've really been enjoying watching the rise and rise of one of the loveliest folk on Twitter, as her writing career kicks up a notch with a gorgeous selection of tales for younger children.
Anne Booth's "Lucy's Magical Surprise" with wonderful illustrations by Sophy Williams, really is a festive treat for our Booky Advent Calendar.

Lucy's help is needed when a donkey foal is about to be born.

It's such an exciting time, but will she be able to gather everyone together in readiness? 

How can Lucy and her friend, Rosie, raise enough money to help bring the harvest mice back to nearby fields? 

While at the village carol concert they meet someone who is set to deliver a truly magical Christmas surprise. 

Fans of Anne's previous titles in this series, Lucy's Secret Reindeer, Lucy's Magic Snow Globe, and Lucy's Winter Rescue won't be able to resist this latest Lucy story! We just adored the wonderful christmassy feelings and positive message this story conveys, a great series for little ones who are beginning to stretch their reading prowess with longer chapter books, but with plenty of illustrations to help the story come to life. 

"Lucy's Magical Surprise" by Anne Booth and Sophy Williams is out now, published by OUP / Oxford Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
