#YAXmasTour2016 - Cora's Last-Minute Christmas Book Guide

Cora's Last-Minute Christmas Book Guide

Sometimes you remember, pretty last minute, that you forgot to get someone a gift... So thank goodness the bookshop is open on Christmas Eve! Here's a quick - last minute - gift guide to get you sorted.

Best for Wee Kids

I don't think you can get any funnier than this when it comes to Christmas books for kids, it's lots of fun and will have the big kids laughing too. Excellent illustration and lyrical writing make this perfect for bed time.

Best for Bigger Kids

Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
This is a classic with a strong, girl-power core. It gives a good lesson in humility and what really matters in life.

Best for Young Teens

Mistletoe and Murder by Robin Stevens
Even if they've never read Wells & Wong before, they'll be sucked right into the mystery, trying to work out whodunnit.

Best for Older Teens

This a a very sweet anthology, filled with festive cheer and a good dose of the Warm Fuzzies. There's something for everyone in this collection.

Best for Reluctant Readers

The mix of poetry and prose, and the different writing styles offered, makes this perfect for reluctant readers. Well, perfect for everyone.

Best for the Romantic

Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan
I don't think you can get any more romantic than Snow Crystal at Christmas, and this start to the O'Neil Brother series is the perfect festive treat.

Best for the Bitter Cynic

Dying For Christmas by Tammy Cohen
This book is perfect for those who just don't want to feel the warm fuzzies. This book messes with your head, with a fantastically unreliable narrator.

Best for Any Age

V&A: The Twelve Days of Christmas by William Morris, Liz Catchpole
This book is absolutely beautiful! Mixing stunning historical works from William Morris with Liz Catchpole's sympathetic illustrations, this books makes the perfect gift for anyone.
