The Christmas Pine

Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Victoria Sandøy


A bewitching picture book for Christmas, written in perfect, heartfelt rhyme by Julia Donaldson, bestselling creator of The Gruffalo and Stick Man. Gorgeous, atmospheric illustrations whisk you from snowy forests to the sparkling city square in this beautiful, moving story of festivity and hope. This is a book to share and treasure for generations.

Deep in a snowy wood stands a little pine tree with a special destiny: when it grows up, it's going to be the famous Christmas tree in London's Trafalgar Square!
