Discover a future festive classic with One Christmas Wish

Published on: 11 December 2017 Author: Catriona Wightman

Katherine Rundell and Emily Sutton may just have come up with a future classic with their gorgeous new book One Christmas Wish.

One Christmas Wish

We all have those books we read every Christmas, and it feels like Katherine Rundell's new story may be one that you end up getting out every year with the tinsel and tree.

This lovely tale follows Theo, who - stuck at home with a babysitter on Christmas Eve - makes a wish upon a star to have some friends so he won't be alone.

Suddenly, four of the tree ornaments come to life, but Theo's new friends all have wishes of their own, so he joins them on an adventure to make their dreams come true.

This lovely story is accompanied by absolutely gorgeous illustrations from Emily Sutton that give it all the feel of a timeless classic.

And what's more, we have a sneak peek inside One Christmas Wish for you right now so you can see what we mean. We know which book we'll be adding to our list for Father Christmas this year...
