“This was the best £5 I’ve ever spent. We purchased this from the author at Knebworth Christmas Fayre. For everyday in Advent you get to read a chapter and the tears that came when my daughter knew we had read the last page because we enjoyed this book so much. 1000% can’t recommend it enough and it was lovely snuggling down each night to find out what happens next. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you for a wonder book.” (Instagram)
