Sue Hampton captures the spirit of Christmas with three warm-hearted stories full of humour, mystery and magic. In the title story, the school Nativity play has been cast and Robbie would rather be an angel than a spotty, hopping globalob, but no one seems to understand. Not Without A Carrot is the story of Trouble, a wilful donkey whose life changes one starlit night long ago. And in Bootee for Etta, a girl who feels alone on Christmas morning finds a tiny lamb in a grassy box.
With illustrations by children from schools Sue has visited, this is a book to make you smile at any time of year.
