Bloomsbury Publishing, 2014. ISBN 9781408836644
(Age: 3+) Snowflakes and Fairy Wishes is a beautiful story of friendship and Christmas fun. Amelie and Nanette are busy getting ready for Christmas but in between the decorating and the baking is also time for fun in the snow. After a lovely afternoon building a snowman, Nanette starts to feel ill and heads home. Will she be well enough for the Christmas party? Amelie can't believe she will have any fun without Nanette.
Snowflakes and Fairy Wishes is a beautiful Christmas story with gorgeous illustrations. It is a story of friendship and understanding that it is that friendship that makes everything better. Girls aged 3+ will enjoy having the story read to them and girls aged 7+ can read it on their own.
