The Christmas Pine – Julia Donaldson

, , ,

Julia Donaldson is one of the most celebrated children’s authors in the world, capturing the hearts of adults and children with her use of rhyming verse. Bestselling author and creator of The Gruffalo, Zog and The Snail and The Whale, Julia’s latest book The Christmas Pine is a magical book based on a true story.

Every year a Christmas tree is gifted to the UK by Norway as a thank you for sheltering their king during World War II. The tree that stands proudly in London’s Trafalgar Square is decorated with lights each year. Julia was commissioned by the Poetry Society to write this year’s poem to celebrate the 2021 tree and in her usual imaginative style, she chose to tell the story of the tree’s life in its own words.

The perfect book to snuggle with your little ones at Christmas, this magical story is gorgeously illustrated by Norwegian Illustrator, Victoria Sandoy, who has perfectly captured the atmospheric forests and sparkling city lights. Full of beautiful details and a gold-foiled dust jacket this book will make the perfect Christmas gift for stockings or Christmas Eve boxes.
