BOOK REVIEW (By Natasha 16/12/16) - Lucy & Tom at Christmas by Shirley Hughes
“Lucy & Tom at Christmas” is about a traditional family Christmas. There is tree decorating, present wrapping, children waking up early, Christmas dinner, games and family visits. It is very Christmasey.
If you love the “Alfie” series then you will absolutely love “Lucy and Tom”. Shirley Hughes has such a gift for writing and illustrating children’s books. She gives you that warm feeling of family and a place to belong. It reminds me of war time when they had a time of true togetherness. It is relatable because it seems based on a real way of life. Kids waking up early to open their presents and getting grumpy throughout the day because they are tired. Fun family games for everyone to join in with on Christmas day. Everyone helping with Christmas dinner and above all else, family and friends being together at a wonderful time of year.
These books are very similar to the “Alfie” books. Lucy and Tom are just like Alfie and Annie Rose. Even though they are similar you will still love “Lucy and Tom” as much as Alfie. The pictures, the text, the storyline - it is all completely enthralling and you will want to read more from the “Lucy and Tom” series. I cannot speak highly enough of Shirley Hughes’ books. I love sharing the stories with my kids and they are the perfect bedtime read!
