Tales from Christmas Wood has several stories within it, all revolving around Christmas Wood and the animals that live there. In the first tale – Badger finds a friend, badger is scaring everyone that lives in Christmas Wood. Not sure what to do, she finds an Owl to talk to and help her make friends. The second tale – Tiny Mouse and the Gingerbread Mystery is about a mouse who makes some cookies – but ends up eating more of the dough than using it to make cookies. I can relate! The third tale is about the rabbits of Christmas Wood, A Burrow Full of Brothers – where Rosie Rabbit wants her Christmas cards to be perfect but her brothers are making things difficult! The fourth tale is about The Amazing Robin – a bird who loved to he a hero and help others. The fifth is a Christmas Eve Adventure with Fidgety Fox. In the final tale, all of the animals of Christmas Wood come together in A Very Busy Barn where they find a baby who was just born in a manger and learn the true meaning of Christmas.
I have to say that I was very much so distracted by the illustrations in this book. They are amazing. all of the animals look like they have fur on them and I just wanted to reach out and pet them all! They are so beautifully done!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
