“A warm, golden picture book about treasuring joyful feelings and the people closest to you.”
– The Guardian
This stunning, magical Christmas tale, from the author of the hugely popular Last Stop on the Reindeer Express, celebrates the joy of giving and the importance of love and family at Christmas.
Christmas for Benji has lost its magic. This year his family can’t afford a tree, or even a turkey. But then he stumbles upon the most extraordinary department store, where polar bears talk and the presents are out of this world. But maybe the real magic of Christmas is waiting for him at home . . .
Children will love discovering the true meaning of Christmas with this delightful seasonal story. The Christmas Department Store is the perfect Christmas gift for fans of Julia Donaldson and Victoria Sandoy’s The Christmas Pine, Dr Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Chris Van Allsburg’s The Polar Express.
"A heart-warming magical tale about how joyful Christmas time can be - even if you can't spend lots of money on fancy gifts or food." "Money is tight, and Benji's family are a little sad - but when Benji visits the enchanted Christmas Department Store, he finds the perfect presents, full of laughter and delight. A warm, golden picture book about treasuring joyful feelings and the people closest to you."
