What makes it so special are what makes every Shirley Hughes story special, the realism and rich detail. Lucy and Tom's preparations for Christmas are carefully detailed - helping with cooking, present buying, the Salvation Army band playing carols, decorating the tree on Christmas Eve and then the excitement of the day itself...
As with all Shirley's stories, she keeps it real, Tom gets over-excited and tearful and goes for a walk in the snow with Grandad to calm down. What a magical, wonderful book.
Just to add, I haven't read the book for some ten years or so, since I passed it on to my daughter for my grandchildren. All the above is written from memory. Which says a lot, I think.
Sally's Secret, Dogger, Lucy and Tom, Alfie, My Naughty Little Sister, they all had something to capture a child's heart. Don't hesitate, give your child the best start in life with Shirley Hughes' books, you can't go wrong!
