Synopsis

A delightful holiday picture book with a read-along CD narrated by screen star Jane Horrocks

It’s Christmas Eve, and snow is falling everywhere — on Maisy’s house, on her friends’ houses, even on Eddie! Everyone is invited to Maisy’s house for Christmas, so off they go in the snow, Cyril on snowshoes and Charley and Tallulah by sled. Luckily, it’s warm inside, and there’s plenty to do, decorating the tree, making mince pies, and wrapping presents. But wait a minute — where is Eddie?
