Full of gorgeous colour artwork and Christmassy activities for all the family to enjoy, this second Winston adventure is sure to become a Christmas classic to be enjoyed year after year.
It is five days until Christmas and Winston has a Very Curious Mystery to solve. He has hazy rememberings of another mouse, and he just knows that someone very important to him is lost. After promising Oliver that he will be back in time for Christmas, no matter what, Winston sets out on an exciting round-the-world adventure to find the missing mouse, helped along the way by wonderful old friends and delightful new ones, too.
A Christmas mystery written in 24-and-a-half-chapters, one to read every day of December in the lead up to Christmas, each chapter includes it's very own festive activity for all the family to enjoy together – including crafting decorations, making Christmas food, discovering Christmas traditions from around the world and so much more!
This gorgeous hardback has a festively foiled cover, a ribbon and artwork on beautiful paper, making it the perfect Christmas gift.
This spectacular volume works like an advent calendar, with 24 and a half chapters and an activity (a present, decoration, treat or act of kindness to craft or cook or practise) for every (or any) day from December 1 to Christmas. It tells a heartwarming story of Winston the mouse, who lives in a toyshop, journeying through France, Germany, Sweden and the North Pole to reunite with loved ones. And the exquisite illustrations are a tour de force.
