One of my favourite traditions of Christmas is reading some feel good festive reads. I’m always on the look out for a new read and since having children, a good Christmas kids read is essential. I heard about Lily and the Christmas Wish by one of my favourite and very talented author Keris Stainton and ordered it straight away.
Lucas, who is 9 tomorrow took one look at the book, paused our reading of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and on the 1st of December we started to read a chapter a night. Both boys are loving listening to Harry Potter, so this was a big deal. They adored Lily and the Christmas Wish more than I ever imagined, hanging on every word and weren’t at all happy when I stopped at the end of the chapter. The chapters in this book are perfect for a chapter a night, short, but not too short and gave enough of the story to keep you wanting more.
Lily and the Christmas Wish is a book based on a 9 year old girl called Lily, her family and what happens in a town called Pinewood when they all make some Christmas wishes. The Christmas wishes get mixed up and it’s up to Lily, her little brother Jimmy and her amazing dog called Bug, who’s a Pug to put it all right in time for the Christmas Eve. We only finished the book last night and I just had to tell you all about it.
