About the Book and Author / Illustrator
This festive story is a gorgeously illustrated celebration of creativity, up-cycling and Christmas magic!
Lily is getting ready for Christmas when she magically transported to Santa’s workshop in the North Pole where her help is required to invent new toys from used, discarded ones.
Lily comes to learn that with a dash of imagination, she can make anything – even, perhaps, a new home…
We are learning about reduce, recycle and reuse at school so I am going to take this into school in December for my teacher to read to my class to help with our topic
I started off this story feeling sad for the little girl not having any friend’s but I soon forgot about that when she got to go on an amazing adventure to Santas workshop.
I loved that all the broken and old toys got a second chance and Lily got to help with this and she made some very unusual toys that children will love on Christmas Day.
We are learning about reduce, recycle and reuse at school so I am going to take this into school in December for my teacher to read to my class to help with our topic.
