Illustrations: Rosalind Beardshaw
Christmas is a time of sharing and giving and this story is more about one piece of cloth than any particular character. The story is the journey of the cloth from a large piece and the gift commissioned for a princess by a king, down to the smallest of left over pieces used to make something for a little mouse. These gifts are made from the heart and this is a beautiful tale about the spirit of giving. The illustrations are simple, subdued in tone and really work. Reading this made me feel like going and hugging my kids. A lovely simple tale with heart.
