Book Review: 'Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List'

✰✰✰ It's almost time for Santa Claus to visit. Peppa Pig, her little brother, and all her friends have written letters to Santa asking for gifts. Everyone wants something different. Soon Peppa's family finds the perfect Christmas tree to decorate on Christmas Eve. Later that night the two little pigs surprise Santa. Peppa asks Santa how he knows which presents to give everyone. Why, it's easy. Santa has a list...or does he? When Santa's list gets lost, how will he know which presents to leave behind? Check out this picture book to see how Peppa saves the day.

The Bottom Line: The pages are colorful and the text is large and easy to read. Unfortunately, both the digitally created illustrations and the text fall a bit flat. Additionally, the story lacks originality. Nevertheless, if your little one enjoys watching the Peppa Pig TV series, then by all means check it out.

Details: Peppa Pig and the Lost Christmas List by Candlewick Press. Hardcover picture book published by Candlewick Press in 2012. 32 p. ISBN: 978-0-7636-6276-9
