This lovely illustrated childrens book is a must for the book shelves if you have children &/or grandchildren.
It was conceived by the late Geoffrey Sundquist following the tragic suicide of his brother, the late actor Gerry Sundquist (who appeared in the TV version of Great Expectations; TV series, Siege on Golden Hill; TV series, The Mallens; The film: 'Music Machine'; to name a few).
Gerry had died when he sadly ended his own life, and Geoffrey wrote this in his memory having remembered the wonderful family Christmases he had shared with his brother and their parents.
Geoffrey wrote this from those memories of the warm, family Christmas memories they shared. Geoffrey in fact dedicated the book to Gerry and their parents.
The book itself is a charming story that every child will love to hear read to them. It is illustrated in a lovely way. It has also been adapted for television by Cosgrove Hall Films, and that cartoon can also be purchased on DVD.
Treat yourself to this lovely little story, you won't be sorry!!
