One Christmas Wish

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

On Christmas Eve, alone with a babysitter, Theo sees a strange star in the sky and makes a wish: to have friends so he is no longer alone. Suddenly, four ornaments from the tree come to life. While Theo now has company, each of his new friends wants something different. So Theo sets out to help each of them with their own Christmas wishes.

One Christmas Wish has the right amount of charm and mischief to delight young readers, and Emily Sutton’s beautiful illustrations evoke the Christmases we dream of: cosy, colourful and magical. This Christmas story is one that will surely see itself on the list of books that families return to every year.
