Six pop-up double-pages, featuring a reindeer, bunnies, robins, snowmen, penguins and polar bears, make this a fantastic Christmas present. When searching for a book for my 3-year old godson, I looked for a book which would "do something", and I found a real treasure in this one. It is exactly what is says it is: a "jolly book full of fun and funky festive pop-ups". And its pages feel strong enough to withstand many touchy-feely readings. Highly recommended for children from age 3 to about 8, I'd say. I bought it in April 2010 for Christmas 2010 because I wanted to make sure I'd have it for him.

This book was bought for two year olds who were hearing and making sense of Santa for the first time. Both loved the spread of colour in the double page pop-ups and opened each page with wonder over and over again, almost reverentially!
It is a beautiful Christmas book which hopefully will be enjoyed for many to come, and in a market where many Christmas books are poorly targetted and don't hold interest this is an exception. I will certainly buy more from same author.
