I know, it’s still a long way off, Christmas. I know, we don’t really want to get started yet. Some shops, however, do seem to be trying to get us started, and October half term is the time when I try to begin thinking about mincemeat making, or some long term baking to be doused with brandy.
And yet, I notice that sales of my picture book, The Little Christmas Tree, are picking up, so some of you good people must be getting organised! As of today, there are only three copies left on Amazon.
There are still copies available elsewhere – for instance through the publishers Lion, and other booksellers such as Waterstones. So, if you were thinking of getting hold of a copy, now may not be too soon at all!
It is beautifully illustrated by Lorna Hussey, and the sparkly edition is a particular joy. Here are some pictures to whet your appetite.
Last year, I took the book to the fascinating Cribfest at St Mary’s Church, Grundisburgh.
I hope you and the young children in your life enjoy it as much this year as you have in previous years.
