Review: Peppa Pig: Peppa's Christmas Jumper Day

Christmas Jumper Day has come around again at Peppa and George’s playgroup.

Daddy Pig goes into the attic to retrieve the Christmas box. The little ones try on last year’s jumpers. Of course they don’t fit. Daddy Pig suggests that George try Peppa’s and Peppa tries Daddy’s. George is set but Peppa has a problem.

They go to bed with a promise from Daddy Pig that all will be well in the morning. He secretly has a grand idea which he’s not willing to share.
After breakfast, Peppa reminds Daddy Pig that she still doesn’t have a Christmas Jumper.

What is Daddy Pig’s idea? What excellent solution has he found to Peppa’s jumper dilemma? Will Madame Gazelle be disappointed? What will the others think?

Bewitching as always, Peppa reigns queen of the kids. Even when there seems to be no solution, Daddy Pig always rises to the occasion.

Themes of problem-solving, festive occasions and their importance to children’s (and adults’) lives give lateral thinking a new shine.

Light-hearted, fully festive, full page images bring us again into Peppa and George’s joyous world. The warmth of the family circle is visible in every word and action. Positive messages flow on every page with no room for the word can’t.

This Ladybird book is made of sturdy board that wipes clean and is perfect for repetitive use and chewing. Ideal for Peppa lovers and every young child’s Christmas stocking.

Ten percent of the retail price will go to Save the Children.
