Little Robin Red Vest

A dreamy Christmas story about sharing and giving, by the best-loved creator of the Mr Wolf picture books. Brrrr! It’s nearly Christmas – and it’s very cold! So one frosty evening a week before Christmas, Little Robin washes and irons seven cosy vests to keep him warm all week long. But as the chilly days go by, he meets lots of shivering animals. So the kind-hearted robin gives them his own vests to wear. But – oh no! Now it’s Christmas Eve, and Little Robin is cold and alone. He’s got nothing to wear, until a special someone arrives to reward his kindness…
