A magical and wonderful festive read that sparkles and twinkles like fresh fallen snow. Transporting readers back to Victorian-era England, David delivers the wonder of Christmas in a heartfelt, thoughtful and hopeful story where kindness, compassion, empathy and friendship are the truest and best gifts of all. Charmingly told and with spellbinding illustrations this refreshing Christmas tale, that explores the possible origins of St Nick and gift giving, will captivate and delight alongside encouraging reflection.
Christmas can be a time when wants outweigh needs and where more value is placed on receiving than giving. Kind-hearted Nicky implores us all to think about what we have, to embrace the joys of giving, to think of others that are less fortunate and how we can help those who may not receive a present or many presents.
Overflowing with the very best of Christmas, this beautiful book is one that every child deserves to have shared with them. Reading in the days leading up to Christmas gives children the opportunity to think about how they can be like Nicky, to evoke the spirit of the Claus Brothers and to bring cheer and good will to all.
