What a beautiful picture book this is - full of delightful festive illustrations. There aren't many words but they manage to convey the story very well, taking us with one small boy on a Christmas trip with his teddy bear. During their fantastic journey they ride a polar bear and meet fairies, an ice queen, fairies, elves, a giant reindeer, a very large snowman and Father Christmas.
The twist at the end, when we realise he hasn't actually left home but is simply absorbed in his favourite book, is just lovely. Perfect for the very young or the young at heart, I'm very happy to have discovered it.
