In this exquisitely illustrated story Hughes, 92, best known for Dogger and the Alfie stories, is not pushing godliness down little throats, but reminding us that kindness goes a long way. We need her gentle parables, generous nudges and spiritual reflection more than ever this season. * The Times *
