Christmas With Auntie
Auntie is here for some holiday fun, playing together until our day’s done.
Christmas is always a special time of year and there’s nothing better than spending this time with your favorite people.
From the author–illustrator team behind the best-selling Loves You! series comes a lovely seasonal tribute to the special bond a wee one and auntie share at Christmastime. In tender rhyming text, Auntie talks about the fun activities they will do together, from baking treats to trimming the tree to listening to carolers, as they celebrate the Christmas holiday.
Brought to life in enchanting woodland scenes, Christmas With Auntie will be a treasured holiday gift sure to be shared from generation to generation.

Illustrator: Petra Brown – Petra Brown has been a children's book illustrator since 2006 when her first picture book If Big Can...I Can, was shortlisted for the Booktrust Early Years Awards for Best Emerging Illustrator. Since then she has been illustrating for a range of publishers in the United Kingdom and abroad. Petra comments, "I love drawing animals with human expressions. I find it such fun creating, for example, a thoughtful fox, a happy hippo, a shy sheep, or a caring bear! The other thing I like is creating landscapes, places where my characters can run about and have adventures. Living in a magnificent place like Snowdonia helps a great deal." Petra lives with her partner in Wales.
