IMG_3012.jpgThe Story:
How Winston Delivered Christmas tells the story of a brave little mouse who sets out on a Very Important Mission on Christmas Eve. When Winston finds a letter that got lost on its way to Father Christmas, he sets out to deliver it himself with the help of some friends he meets along the way.

How to Read This Book:
The book is written in 24 and a half chapters, and each chapter should be read on the corresponding day of advent (with the final half chapter being read on Christmas day itself). Alongside the next part of Winston’s Christmas adventure, each chapter has a festive activity you can do as a family, from writing a letter to Father Christmas to making Christmas decorations.

Favourite Spread:
We have been reading a chapter a day throughout advent and the story just gets better and better. We love reading about Winston’s journey and Alex’s beautiful illustrations are the icing on the Christmas pudding!

We love seeing what festive activity the new day will bring. I particularly loved making a Pompom Robin.

The Verdict:
This is a Christmas book that makes a lovely keepsake gift, but you’ll definitely be buying a second copy for your own family! For me, How Winston Delivered Christmas is a creative advent calendar in the form of an exquisitely illustrated story book that will become a part of the family Christmas traditions for years to come.
