THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER.


Book five read for this year's Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge (Details on the right side-bar): Visions Of Sugar Plum #2.


THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER by SYLVIA GREEN.

SOURCE: Borrowed from a friend.

BACK COVER BLURB: Puss is a country cat, born and bred. He loves his territory and knowing all the other animals in his village to say hello to, or to chase, depending. So he doesn't understand when Jenni moves to the town, where the traffic frightens him and everyone's so unfriendly ... He decides he's got to get back home.

When he runs off, Jenni is frantic. Puss has adventure after adventure, while Jenni tries to track him down. Then, in the end, they both discover there are good things in town, too. Just in time for Christmas ... 

FIRST SENTENCE {Chapter One: I'm Not Staying Here!}: "They might want to stay in that strange house.

MEMORABLE MOMENT {Page 101}: The brightly decorated Christmas tree made her think of him trying to climb it when he was a kitten. And of him jumping up to catch the silver and gold baubles.

MY THOUGHT: A sweet enough tail, purrfect for young readers who are feline in need of an animal story that isn't too sad. Whilst the plot and characters are unexceptional the pawsome pen and ink illustrations make this an incredibly charming book.

This reminds me of the Puppy Place books. My daughter used to love those when she was younger.

I am looking for some gifts for children who like animals and reading. This looks to be perfect. I will try to lay my hands on a few copies.
