From the multi award-winning creator of the modern classic Meerkat Mail, this gorgeous festive treat follows Sunny the meerkat as he travels the world in the search of the perfect Christmas.

A Sunday Times Book of the Year.

Sunny wants a white Christmas, with a decorated tree, carols and sprouts for dinner . . . none of which he can see at home in the Kalahari desert. So off he heads to find the perfect Christmas elsewhere, before realizing that maybe Christmas isn’t all about the trimmings.

Emily Gravett’s witty and heartwarming celebration of festive fun and family love shows that Christmas can be whatever you want it to be.

Publisher Review

Lots of lovely lift-the-flaps as the wonderful Emily Gravett delivers festive fun. -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail * This book will become a forever favourite as you dash around the world with the Meerkat family. * Baby Magazine * Sunny, Emily Gravett's loveable meerkat, is searching the world for the perfect Christmas. With lots of lift-the-flaps, this adorable book will be a delight for fans of the Jolly Christmas Postman. * Angels and Urchins * Fun and quirky. * Woman's Weekly Book Club * The two-time Kate Greenaway medal winner delivers more of her Meerkat Mail with this postcard-flap filled tale. * i newspaper * This witty postcard adventure is about what really makes Christmas perfect. * Metro * Global adventures come from the sublime Emily Gravett in Meerkat Christmas. A meerkat goes all around the world in search of snow, fir trees, figgy pudding etc, sending chirpy postcards to his family in the Kalahari desert that convey the disappointingly dismal reality of Christmas away from family and home. * New Statesman * Emily Gravett's Meerkat Christmas sees Sunny the meerkat travel to the seaside and Antarctic to find the perfect snowy Christmas, only to learn that being with his family in the Kalahari, where cactuses are decorated with insects and snakes, is perfect after all. It is beautifully drawn, with comical mice, penguins and reindeer, cards to open, and bad cracker jokes * Sunday Times - Book of the Year *
