A Perfect Chirpy ChristmasFlit is a small bird living in New Zealand who dreams about having a white Christmas overseas.  He decides to make his dream come true and flies out to discover a snowy city for his perfect, chirpy Christmas.  His ideal Christmas isn’t as perfect as he planned and he miss his family and the sun.  He heads home to celebrate at the beach the next year, realising a snowy Christmas may be nice, but there’s nothing better than celebrating with family and friends.

The writing is clear and easy to read and there’s a substantial amount of words which will appeal to older children, 4-6s.  The illustrations are by Patrick McDonald and are incredibly detailed, helping to tell the story while being light and visually appealing.

This book is for everyone who has wanted to jump on a plane and head north for a snowy Christmas.  It will make a perfect gift for far-flung family you are hoping will come home!
