~~~What we think~~~
I think this is a lovely fun story for children and it teaches them to help each out. I really like this story but Jack and Lillie don't seem that interested at the moment though I'm sure they will like it as they get older.
I think the book is well illustrated as you can follow the story with the pictures and they are nice and bright.
I would recommend this book as I think it is a fun story to get you into the christmas mood.
The RRP for this book is £2.50
