There are some gorgeous new children’s books that would make great Christmas presents this year.

Two in particular:Snow

‘Snow’        by Walter de la Mare           £6.99

“No breath of wind,

No gleam of sun –

Still the white snow

Whirls softly down –

As the day draws to a close, a family prepares for Christmas. Outside, the world slowly turns to white… This enchanting edition of de la Mare’s glorious celebration of the wonder of snow is beautifully illustrated by Carolina Rabei. One of the most outstanding picture books to be published this year, it will surely become a classic.

Mimi and the Mountain Dragon

‘Mimi and the Mountain Dragon’       by Michael Morpurgo         £5.99

Michael Morpurgo is a master story teller and this is evident in his latest Christmas tale.  “In her castle lair, high in the mountains of Switzerland, lives a terrible dragon.  In the village below, lives a brave little girl called Mimi.  When Mimi finds a baby dragon in the woodshed one snowy Christmas morning, she makes a decision that will bring joy and peace to the village forever.” A heart-warming Christmas adventure that all the family can share, it perfectly combines magic, adventure and Christmas cheer and would make an ideal stocking-filler.

Of course there are lots more we would love to show you when you come into Cornerstone…
