My next recommendation is another book that is perfect for both young or old. Matt Haig is well known for both his adults and children’s novels and although The Truth Pixie is aimed at younger readers, there is a message that will touch us all, no matter our age or circumstance. Beautifully presented and wonderfully illustrated, this is an absolutely gorgeous book bursting with Christmas sparkle.
Matt has had an amazing year in books. He is a prominent figure in the fight to raise awareness for mental health issues. From his own personal experiences he has chosen to help those who may be suffering and anyone in general understand a little more about mental health. He is outspoken, courageous and is a fantastic storyteller. I would wholeheartedly recommend any of his books but this one in particular, one that will encourage children from a young age to love themselves for who they are, will make a perfect Christmas Eve book.
Wherever she is, whatever the day,
She only has one kind of thing to say.
Just as cats go miaow and cows go moo,
The Truth Pixie can only say things that are true.
A very funny and loveable tale of how one special pixie learned to love herself.
With words by the bestselling mastermind Matt Haig and pictures by the inky genius Chris Mould.
