Christmas for Greta and Gracie


Bursting with energy and colour, this funny family picture book about sisters by award-winning author, Yasmeen Ismail, is a real festive treat!

Greta and Gracie are sisters – Greta is chatty while Gracie is quiet and it’s all FINE until, one day, everything changes. It’s nearly Christmas, and together the sisters decorate the tree, shop for presents and even try a spot of ice-skating. But Greta, of course, ALWAYS knows best and poor Gracie can’t get a word in. Then on Christmas Eve, while Greta is quietly sleeping, Gracie hears a funny noise – could it be . . . Santa!? She creeps downstairs to investigate and, the next morning, when she tells her big sister all about the special someone, chitty-chatty Greta is, finally, lost for words!

A heart-warming and hilarious bedtime story about the highs (and lows!) of sister relationships!

From the winner of The New York Times’ Best Illustrated Book Award and the V&A best illustrated Book Award.
