The Christmas Extravaganza Hotel

Publisher: Little Tiger Press

Review

When an excitable Frog turns up at a taciturn Bear’s front door, he’s looking for a Christmas Extravaganza he’s seen advertised in a magazine. Problem is, he’s had his map upside down and found his way to Bear’s house in error. Yet, kindly Bear takes pity on disappointed Frog and invites him in anyway.

Baking pastries, snowball fights (with REAL SNOW!), real reindeer and finally the Northern Lights themselves aren’t what was advertised in Frog’s brochure, but they turn out to be far better than the flashy Extravaganza that promised so much.

A lovely tale about friendship, kindness and valuing all the wonderful parts of the festive season that aren’t directly about consumerism.
