Day 2 of our Book Nook advent recommendations and today we are truly getting into the magical spirit of Christmas with this beauty; The Snow Dragon by Abi Elphinstone and Fiona Woodcock. It’s a stunning picture book for older children, celebrating hope and the power of adventure, with beautiful snowy illustrations that will have you daydreaming about your own winter wanderings. We love our Snow Dragon window display created for us by Fiona, and think The Snow Dragon is the perfect book to share with children who are reading independently but still enjoy that special time curled up together with a book.

About the book:

You can be late for many things in life, but you should never keep an adventure waiting…

In Griselda Bone’s gloomy orphanage, daydreaming is banned, skipping is forbidden and Christmas is well and truly cancelled. But for Phoebe and her sausage dog Herb, is it possible that, just when things seem at their bleakest, magic awaits in the swirling, snow-filled air?

Join them on an enchanting adventure in this beautifully moving story by the bestselling author of Sky Song and The Unmapped Chronicles, Abi Elphinstone, and renowned illustrator Fiona Woodcock.
