To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Had a copy of this little book, and used it many times as a party piece at Christmas celebrations to get a whol group involved. The book was lost in a house move,then I found this copy on Amazon - so happy to have it again. You will enjoy the fun of it!
This has to rank among the very best of Christmas stories. It is fun; it has wit and is wonderful to read aloud to a large number of people. Highly recommended, partly for the wonderful illustrations by Quentin Blake!
I bought this because of a love for Quentin Blake illustrations and I also enjoy this tale at Christmas. The book does not disappoint and is a pleasure to give or receive. It is a small book but full of life and colour and some of the illustrations really capture the imagination !!
I had a hard copy of this book many years ago and loved it, but I must have lent it out as this year I could not find it. I therefore bought the e -version in order to share my pleasure with others. It is an easy read and as a literacy tutor, I wanted something for the children to read in the run up to Christmas. Every child who read it thought it very funny. I still find it great after many readings. It is an enduring book.
Love love love. Great take on this traditional song/story and, of course, Quenington Blakes illustrations make this extra special. Read this several years back and just never got round to getting a copy - never letting this one go !
