Due to high demand we are currently limiting all of our Christmas themed books to 1 per loan. We are working hard to change this but we don’t want any of our library members to miss out on receiving a Christmas book this year!

If you wish to order more than 1 Christmas book then please let us know in the notes of the order which one you would like first. When you have returned 1 Christmas book we will then send out the next one as soon as it is available.

Thank you for understanding. With Love from the Library Team.

On a cold starry night above the hills of Bethlehem, a hungry fox is looking for some supper. Suddenly, the sky is full of light and there is the sound of angels singing. What on earth is happening and what unforgettable sight is the fox about to see? Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen’s delightful nativity story.

Listen to an audio clip

This is the Christmas story told to us by a fox who went out looking for his supper and then heard the sound of angels singing.
Let's turn quickly to our first feely picture and meet the fox.
He is at the top sideways on and facing the right.
As you move in from the top left first you meet his magnificent fluffy tail which he is waving in the air.
Foxes usually keep their tails low near to the ground because they don't want them seen when they're hunting but here the fox is very excited.
