A Very Corgi Christmas

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Review

It’s Christmas Eve, and Buckingham Palace is a flurry of activity, but the royal corgis are just simply not amused at all the hustle and bustle. However, Belle, a young corgi, wishes that she could be a part of the festivities – and when she looks out of the window at a glittering London, she decides to take the plunge, and escapes.

But when Belle steps out onto Piccadilly Circus, everything is rather too bright and too loud until she meets Pip, a friendly dog who shows her around. Belle is tempted to stay forever, but she realises that her family must be worried, so she and Pip hatch an ingenious plan to return to the palace. Yet when Belle loses Pip in the hullabaloo, she’s sad at having lost her friend – until a certain Duke and Duchess make her Christmas dreams come true.

Delightful dogs and Christmas adventure (with a gentle nod to the latest royal couple, for their young fans) combine in a charming rhyming picture book for the festive season.
