How Winston Delivered Christmas tells the story of how Winston, a very small mouse, finds a letter to Father Christmas which has, somehow, escaped from the letterbox. He realises it is Christmas Eve and, unless he finds a way to get the letter to the big man, there will be a child with no presents to open the next day – even though he is just a small, cold and hungry mouse he knows he has to deliver the letter. Over twenty-four and a half chapters, Winston travels through snow and very large cars to save the day.  There are also lots of ideas for crafts and other activities making for a very interactive book. It also reminds children and parents that Christmas is a time to think of others – and that you can have adventures even if you are small and scared.
