Booky Advent Calendar Day 5: "Oh Christmas Tree" by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet (Macmillan Children's Books)

Day 5 on our festive roundup of amazing children's books, and a new bouncy rhyming book from the genius team behind "Supertato"

"Oh Christmas Tree!" by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet is perfect for busy little ones who love a jape or two in the festive build-up.

It’s Christmas time and every tree on Sidney Street is beautifully decorated – except for one! 

This rebellious tree would rather sit at the table and pull crackers on Christmas day than stand in a corner wearing glittery decorations! 

Bauble, Belle and the Tinsel Snake need the tree to behave, so they can fulfil their decorating destinies, but the argumentative tree just won’t stand still and be decorated. 

Then Belle has a crafty idea. . .

This festively funny story is full of Sue and Paul's usual warmth and wit, with brilliant characters and a bouncy rhyming text.

"Oh Christmas Tree!" by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet is out now, published by Macmillan Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
