No. of pages 40

A delightful midi-edition of the bestselling picture book The Christmas Eve Tree, including a stunning pop-up - coming just in time for Christmas! A magical midi-edition of Delia Huddy and Emily Sutton's poignant, exquisitely illustrated Christmas story, with a beautiful pop-up cityscape. When the ugly little fir tree is taken to the city, no one wants to buy him; they prefer the big tall trees. But a homeless boy asks the shopkeeper if he can take the tree, and down by the river in a cardboard box, decorated with a few candles, the tree finds itself at the centre of a magical Christmas Eve it will never forget. With a stunning pop-up of a snowy city skyline, this is a Christmas tale with a classic feel but a modern theme at its heart.
