"This book has a wonderfully nostalgic, warm, comforting feel to it. The storyline and writing feel cosy and traditional, but also fresh and modern too. Rundell injects her story with energy and humour and the ending is particularly moving and surprising. The characters are all delightful too - amusing, engaging and larger than life and the writing is bought to life by Emily Sutton's beautiful, quirky and colourful illustrations. The perfect book to read whilst sat by a crackling fire, drinking a hot chocolate and watching the festive lights twinkle."
