Peapod’s Book Advent Days 16 and 17

You can find out more about our Christmas Book Advent here.

Two very different books in a row here!

Lucy and Tom at Christmas by Shirley Hughes

Another we read last year, and very much along the same lines as Alfie’s Christmas that we read a few days ago, this is another astute and nostalgic portrayal of a family preparing for and celebrating Christmas.

Peapod spent ages poring over the illustrations in this one, which is no surprise with the amount of detail and life Shirley packs into them. He especially liked the pictures of the Christmas tree and of Tom mixing pudding and looking out the window!

Oh, Christmas Tree! by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet

This one is new this year from the creators of Supertato, and is full of the rhyming humour you’d expect from them.

Peapod wasn’t as enamoured with this one but I think it’s one he’ll love when he’s a bit bigger and can understand a little more of the story.

We thought it was a funny idea, cleverly done and had a good chuckle at the ending!

    1. Thanks! I’m sure he will. He’s such a fickle thing at the moment he’ll probably like it in a day or two!! It is a good one, isn’t it?!
