Zoe and Beans: Zoe's Christmas List by Chloe and Mick Inkpen

Zoe is a child who knows exactly what she wants, and Christmas is no exception. In order to make sure that Father Christmas knows what to bring her for Christmas, Zoe and Beans travel to the North Pole to deliver her list in person. But not everything goes as planned - it looks like Zoe and Beans are in for quite an adventure!

I have to admit that I wasn't familiar with Zoe and Beans before I picked up this Christmas volume, but I was quickly and easily charmed by this book. The illustrations are great and there's a strong playfulness that comes through with the text and the pictures. This is particularly evident with the use of a pull-out page that expands on the idea of how a picture book page is used. This book will appeal to kids who are already fans of Zoe and Beans, but also to children who are looking for a holiday-themed read.

Find it at Amazon.
