When a sack of presents lands – THWACK – right by Norman’s stocking he is overcome with excitement. He really must have been a very good slug this year. But after a frenzy of unwrapping he spots a label – and realises that none of the presents were meant for him, but had in fact fallen off Father Christmas’s sleigh. Norman knows he has to get the presents to the family they’re meant for – but how can he manage it on time? Can one little slug save Christmas?
This is Izebellas latest and rather festive read. The author of this book is Sue Hendra and the book comes with lots of bright and colourful illustrations with a Christmas theme. Sue has worked on over 80 titles and it’s not the first book that the rather large Norman slug has been the main character in. Her other titles include Barry the Fish with fingers and Keith the Cat with the magic hat, to name just a few.
This title is aimed at young children aged 3 and above, including early and non readers. It’s a really easy read for those just starting to learn to read and also makes a nice and rather short story for those like Izebella who are too young to read. There is plenty of Christmas items to spot amongst the pages too.
This book is published by Simon and Schuster and can be purchased on Amazon for a discounted price of just £3.49.
