Emily Brown and Father Christmas Reviews


Any parent whose child has resisted bedtime will relate to this funny tale. * The Sun *
A supremely witty take, verbal and visual, on the improbably magic of present delivery. * The Sunday Times *
Cressida Cowell...is a bona fide superstar of the children's books circuit. * Huffington Post *
The gorgeous story has an important message about cherishing traditions, old and new, that children everywhere will understand. A winning combination of a bunny, gifts ad enchanting illustrations ensure the Christmas magic is complete. * The Sun *
A supremely witty take, verbal and visual * The Sunday Times *
Deliciously droll * The New Statesman *
Fabulously fun artwork from Neal Layton and a laugh-out-loud text from the author of How to Train Your Dragon, Emily Brown is a character that everyone will love. This festive tale serves as a perfect introduction to the series, or a great addition for long-standing fans. * Booktrust *
Cowell is best-known for her books for older readers, but Emily Brown proves she understands younger readers and their delight in repetition, catchphrases and manageable disaster. Layton's illustrations, meanwhile, literally pop off the page, with cut-out cartoon-style characters placed upon a watercolour and pencil-sketch background in an effective collage-inspired style. * Irish Times *
A story that celebrates the best of Christmas * Storytime magazine *
