It’s that time of year again, where we enjoy nothing more than curling up on the sofa with our festive book post, a piping hot chocolate in hand and perhaps a cheeky mince pie and ‘Ollie’s Christmas Reindeer‘ by Nicola Killen, was the best excuse we needed to do just that.
Woken from her sleep on Christmas Eve, Ollie’s dreams become a real-life adventure, when she hears silver bells jingling in the distance and sets out to find out where the sound is coming from.
Killen’s deceptively simple illustrations are pitched perfectly for a most charming story and the details provide a luxurious backdrop to this wholesome tale.
Amongst these delightful chromatic spreads, Ollie and her reindeer spend a most magical evening soaring above the earth and forging a special friendship that will last for years to come.
We’ll be gifting this to a number of young people this Christmas and it’ll be top of our list for a Christmas Eve read.
