Industry Reviews
"You can almost smell the seasonal sugar and spice in Snow in the Garden: A First Book of Christmas from Shirley Hughes. Nobody captures the joy of each season, the way the light falls and the world looks at different times of the year, or the tiny details of family life, quite as well as Hughes. This collection of Christmas-themed stories, poems, recipes and craft ideas deserves to become as well-thumbed and covered in crumbs as all of her previous books." * The Observer *
"A glorious, gentle countdown to Christmas." * The Times, Children's Book of the Week *
"A seasonal collection [...] accompanied by beautiful illustrations." * The Sunday Express *
"It sums up Christmas beautifully." * Picture Books Blogger *
"Perfect seasonal companion!" * Angels and Urchins *
