One Christmas Wish (paperback) by Katherine Rundell, illustrated by Emily Sutton


We think Katherine Rundell might just be the best children's writer around - as grownups we have loved her books just as much as our kids, and they have extended the time we've been able to read together. The woman is a genius. 

One Christmas Wish is a thoroughly magical story destined to become a Christmas classic. The heart-warming tale of Theo’s festive plea and a quartet of lovable yuletide decorations brought to life, One Christmas Wish is a wintry gem to treasure forever, with superb illustrations by the very gifted Emily Sutton.

It's Christmas Eve and Theo - left at home with a babysitter - sees an odd-looking star out of his window and decides to make a wish. He wishes that he had some friends to keep him company. Moments later the Christmas decorations begin to disentangle themselves from the tree behind him, ready to wreak a little havoc ...

Written with generous helpings of warmth and humour, this is a timeless Christmas story about treasuring the people and values that really matter at this time of year.

With breathtaking illustrations by Emily Sutton capturing the magic of the season in stunning detail, this modern classic from master storyteller and bestselling children's author Katherine Rundell makes the perfect Christmas gift.
