An inspiring tale of Christmas goodwill and acceptance from Shirley Hughes, one of the world's best-loved picture-book creators. When Bronwen and Dylan are frightened by ghostly noises from the chimney on Christmas Eve, they run straight into the arms of their neighbour Mrs O'Riley. As they step next door for the first time, it's not just Bronwen and Dylan who can stop being afraid of what's on the other side of their walls - Mam might just find a blessing there too. 1930s Liverpool is brought alive with evocative drawings in a story that recognizes the richness of human kindness, even in times of hardship and poverty.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The text is much longer than that usually found in picture books, making it best suited for children who are on the cusp of reading for themselves and beyond. However, such are the quality of the writing and the beauty of the pictures that younger children will be engaged for longer than they might otherwise have been. It's a Shirley Hughes book that is as much of a must-read as you would expect; is there really anything else you need to know? Highly recommended. * The Bookbag.co.uk *
This Christmas tale of belief in the goodness of people is a timeless message * The Bookseller *
a delightful snapshot of an era ... a great read for elderly grandparents to share with primary-age children * Daily Mail *
Best-selling illustrator Shirley Hughes has a rare gift for capturing the essence of childhood ... this is a touching story of children growing up in hard times but surrounded by love ... in this feast of a picture book stuffed full of wonderful details of the time * Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids *
Shirley Hughes' wonderful illustrations sensitively depict family life * Juno *
