Merry Christmas - A Superdog Adventure
by Raphael Thierry
Age Range: Under_5
Superdog is promised he’ll receive a present for Christmas, and tries to think what it could be. The parcel arrives and it’s a pair of scissors. He snips himself free but soon he’s back, because, after all, Superdog is too attached to his post.
A delightful way for children to ponder the expectation that presents engender, before they realise that sometimes what you already have is better than what you desire. Characterised by the use of variations on a bold base colour for cover and spreads in leaf greens and by the covers extending into flaps, these are highly attractive little picture books with splendidly minimalist illustration, and a very enterprising dog as protagonist.
