One Christmas Wish

Katherine Rundell, illustrated by Emily Sutton


It’s Christmas Eve and Theo is alone in the house with a sleeping baby-sitter. Looking at the stars, he makes ‘One Christmas Wish‘ for company. What will the aged Christmas decorations, brought to life, want from Theo on Christmas Eve? How might they usher up some Christmas spirit?
Emily Sutton’s pictures hint at a Christmas past. Their slightly stippled, matte finish are dream-like, rather like the imaginings and possibilities of a Christmas Eve. Who hasn’t wondered at the coming to life of their toys?
One Christmas Wish’ is an inspiring, beautiful, classic story, deserving special seasonal role. This is its third year and incarnation. It has already earned its place as an annual title to share and treasure.
