Dear Father Christmas

Dear Father Christmas by Alan Durant, illustrated by Vanessa Cabban (Walker Books)
PB RRP $ 16.95
ISBN 9781406351491
Review by Anastasia Gonis

All Christmas books are delightful and welcome at this time of year. Lift-the-flap letters always add a special touch and renew the spirit of Christmas with their messages of hidden longings.

Beautifully illustrated ad presented in full page colour, Alan Durant has created a loving approach to children’s wishes for the festive season. Warm and endearing thoughts from a child’s mind fill Holly’s letters left to Father Christmas on the mantelpiece.

A magical journey and dreams come true bring joy into Holly’s life after she builds up the courage to write what she really wants on the list she leaves for Father Christmas.
