Our little friend Grug is back and it is Grug's first Christmas. Grugs friend Cara tells him all about Christmas. He then sets out to celebrate Christmas. Grug makes a Christmas tree, bakes some goodies for his friends and even gets a strange package from someone called Santa.

A cute little book for your little one. Big colourful pictures and a basic story that a new reader will find easy to follow.

This year my son was just to young to really understand, he did enjoy the pictures thought. But I suspect this book well be great next year. It should be a good way to introduce him to Christmas.

If your child likes Grug this one will also be a hit.


  1. Thanks to you Grug is on my list for Gage's library :)

  2. LOL Stacy that is great.

    I work in a bookstore and recently a Grug toy box set was released. The amount of adults who squealed (Yes squealed) "OMG its Grug, I lov Grug" was pretty crazy. There were lots of people.
