About this deal

A brilliantly funny story of Christmas chaos starring the one and only Daisy, from the bestselling author behind the hilarious OI FROG series. The collection paints a tremendous spectrum of experience: the story of a prank come good by Bram Stoker; Sally Rooney on the love languages of the new generation; Donal Ryan on the pains of ageing; Edna O'Brien on political entanglements; James Joyce on losing a loved one; and the internal monologue of a coma sufferer by Marian Keyes. The story kept her interest and made her laugh and was her first book that had less pictures and more like 'a grown up book' for her. She felt really grown up reading a book with chapters although there re plenty of pictures to keep them going - I was impressed!

Like Charles Dickens's ghosts of Christmas Past and Present, they are representative of times old and new--from John Donne's Elizabethan hymn over the baby Jesus to Benjamin Zephaniah's "Talking Turkeys," from Thomas Tusser counting the cost of a Tudor feast to P.We work closely with publishers and authors to ensure that we offer the best books on the market for your child. Twenty-four seasonal chapters allow the excitement to build as parents and grandparents can share pages of unforgettable adventures, festive traditions, tales of elves, snowmen and reindeer, fairytales, folklore and family fun. Reflecting the changing seasons and linking to events on key dates - funny for April Fool's Day, festive for Christmas - these poems are thoughtful, inspiring, humbling, informative, quiet, loud, small, epic, peaceful, energetic, upbeat, motivating, and empowering! Nick Sharratt has written and illustrated many books for children including Shark in the Park, You Choose and Pants. But, as ever with Daisy, things don't go quite according to plan and when the Baby Jesus dolly's head wobbles and falls off, total Christmas chaos ensues.
