Lettice: A Christmas Wish by Mandy Stanley
There is definitely a sub-category of Christmas picture books that focuses on sparkly Christmas books, and they usually have the sparkles helpfully located right on the front cover. With Lettice (who I had not met as a picture book character before this book), the sparkles were the first thing that I noticed, and I imagine that many other young children - likely young girls - will notice the cover as well. Lettice is a fun and friendly character and the message of sharing Christmas - a Christmas beyond sparkles and presents - is a positive one. This book will be a favourite for existing Lettice fans and a great entry point for new fans.
Check out Harper Collins Canada for a peek inside the book.
