    Snow is falling on Christmas Eve and everyone is quiet. The stars are out, we're all in bed, but who will visit you in the night...?

    This book provides a far healthier alternative to chocolate advent calendars as your young children get excited about the big day... It has 25 flaps to lift and follows the story of a little girl, boy and dog who are eagerly counting down to Christmas Day.

    As they get more and more excited, they find carollers singing in a busy square, watch ballerinas spin and twirl and find some people baking Christmas cookies.

    Two of the most recognisable and talented names in children's books - author Ian Whybrow and Gruffalo illustrator Axel Scheffler - combine to come up with a cracking Christmas story that will delight children.

    A lift-the-flap book, it follows Father Christmas as he sets out to deliver the presents but leaves poor Bear in the workshop. Will he be able to make it to Tom's house in time for Christmas morning?

    As Bear journeys through icy seas and snowy forests, children will be able to find out if he makes it in time by lifting the flaps. The artwork is striking, the rhymes are funny and the scenarios very silly - it's a cool Christmas book for parents and toddlers to enjoy together.
