One of several Christmas books (also The Christmas Alphabet and The Night Before Christmas), this stunning pop-up book relies on colour-blocked pages and striking white creations that jut from the page in the most eye-boggling of shapes.
From that magnificent partridge in its pear tree to a glorious music box shimmering with silvery mirrors, this is a book that utterly delights the senses in every way. Get two. One for keeping and one for grasping by tiny fists bursting with excitement.
