Sammy Claws the Christmas Cat
Publisher: Nosy Crow
Sammy Claws, Santa’s sleepy pet cat, is desperate to help with deliveries on Christmas Eve, but he keeps dozing off. When he curls up inside an empty box in the workshop, he is accidentally wrapped up and loaded onto the sleigh.
Rousing from his slumber mid-flight, Sammy Claws is alarmed to see two suspicious-looking characters lurking on a rooftop, up to no good. While Santa is busy depositing gifts down chimneys, Sammy bravely springs into action to save the day.
At the end of the tale, Santa has a special gift for Sammy to ensure he will never sleep through an adventure again...
Each page of this book bursts with vibrant illustrations, which are full of charming details, such as an 'Elf & Safety' checklist in the factory and a fuel pump containing magic dust to send the sleigh on its way. The rhyming text and humorous antics of the lovable cat make this an ideal tale to read aloud to young children during the festive period.
