A Winter's Night (A Heart-warming Treasury of Animal Stories)
A heart-warming treasury of Christmas animal stories, prefect for sharing for sharing when the nights draw in. As the snow falls and children sleep, a young reindeer witnesses the magic of the Northern Lights for the first time, a lonely owl searches for someone to share Christmas with, and Santa is in for a surprise when he encounters a playful puppy on Christmas Eve...
Ten stories, all set in winter, some Christmassy and all beautifully written. Each story can be read as a standalone tale. An ideal book to have as a bedtime story book. The authors are some of Stripes books most popular authors: Michael Brand, Julia Green, Guy Bass, Elizabeth Baguley, Penny Dolan, Caroline Pitcher, Karen Wallace, Holly Webb, Malachy Doyle and Narinder Dhami.
Although the stories are all on the theme of winter and of animals, there are many styles of story. Some include wide animals, others soft toy animals, a mystical story and others of pets. They are all lovely stories which children of all ages will love to read themselves or maybe cuddle up with and listen to others reading to them.
This book would be a lovely gift for a child of any age to either read themselves or listen to other read the stories.
Thank you to Stripes books for sending me this book to review.
