What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From beloved author Katherine Rundell comes a clever, funny, and poignant picture book about a lonely little boy who wishes not to be alone on Christmas. A young boy’s Christmas Eve wish on a shooting star leads to an adventure with an ever-hungry rocking horse, an angel whose wings are molting, a robin who has forgotten how to sing, and a rusting tin drummer boy in Katherine Rundell’s classic Christmas story, with Emily Sutton’s gorgeous paintings.

4.5 / 7.0

The artwork is really nice and the story is lovely and festive. You should know, however, that this is really more a book for the chapter book crowd. It’s very long, and the illustrations are more decorations on the page than actual elements pushing the story forward.

She grew up in Zimbabwe, Brussels, and London, and is currently a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford.
