Walker's Christmas Eve pick

The countdown for Christmas is on! Here's our top picture book pick for curling up with this Christmas Eve.

Petr Horáček’s Suzy Goose and the Christmas Star brings back the lovable Suzy Goose in a story of her efforts to find the brightest star to top her friends’ Christmas tree. Climbing up fences, whooshing down hills and leaping from log piles, Suzy tries everything she can think of to reach the stars in the sky. Unfortunately, she can’t quite get high enough and soon Suzy finds herself lost in the snow on Christmas Eve. Luckily for her, she is guided home by the calls of her worried friends and when she arrives back safely, she’s in for a magical surprise!

Narrated with simple but exciting language, the dynamic lettering wonderfully compliments Petr’s unique, beautiful illustrations. Guaranteed to capture the spirit of Christmas for young children, Suzy Goose and the Christmas Star shows that the most important part of the festive season is being with loved ones.
