It’s Christmas and it’s Mothball’s time to celebrate in Mothball’s unique way. After getting rid of the dangly things on the tree which are in her way, she not only smells carrots but finds strange creatures eating them! And so begins a carrot-eating journey that takes her far from home and back again. Just how does Santa get back up the chimney?
From the author of Diary of a Wombat comes this new Mothball adventure that will delight every young reader. Written in just a few words that express her thoughts and perfectly illustrated by Bruce Whatley this is the newest addition to my Christmas collection and it will be one that is shared with Miss 2 and Miss 3 just as soon as they get here. Both are already familiar with Mothball from the other titles in the series, so Grandma will be top of Santa’s Nice list for having this one. It’s just perfect.
