Katie’s London Christmas By James Mayhew

I know it’s technically still October, but it’s very nearly November. Also, don’t forget, I’m a primary school teacher, I’ve been counting down till Christmas since September. It’s half term, I’m allowed to get excited about the festive period now, and what better way than this gorgeous book. The illustrations are stunning! They make me feel proud to live in this wonderful city. Let’s all cross our fingers for some snow days. Purely because it makes the city look so lovely, no other reason.
Celebrate 25 years of Katie with this new, irresistibly Christmassy story! Join Katie and Jack as they help Father Christmas to deliver presents all over London – visiting some of the best landmarks the capital has to offer! Christmas is a magical time of year, when absolutely anything incredible can happen. So when Katie and Jack are woken up late on Christmas Eve by a loud sneeze, little do they realise that they are about to embark on the most amazing evening! Soon they are flying high across London, over snow-dusted landmarks, through the star-scattered sky with the one and only Father Christmas, in his sleigh, with his magical reindeer! But can they help Father Christmas to deliver all his presents and be back in time for Christmas morning? This story is illustrated with James’s extraordinarily beautiful artwork and features some of London’s best sights.
