The excitement of Christmas is nicely captured in this story of resourceful Zoe and Beans, her faithful companion. Zoe doesn’t want to be surprised at Christmas; she knows exactly what she wants and to make sure she gets it she takes her list right to the North Pole where Father Christmas is sure to find it. Zoe’s list is simple. It has only one thing on it. But Zoe’s eventful and snowy journey gives her a different view of what really matters to her… A touching story with a beautiful fold-out illustration at its centre.
Zoe knows exactly what she wants for Christmas, and to make sure Father Christmas does too, she and Beans take a trip across the Arctic all the way to the North Pole. But with a baby polar bear to rescue and a swirling snowstorm to contend with, will they ever make it?!
