This is a delightful book for children and I’m so pleased to be sharing my review today. First of all, this is a Vroom-Town Book Sept 2019 Medium 2beautiful looking book. It’s has a really sturdy paperback cover and the pages inside are thick and glossy. I’m pleased to say that what’s contained between the covers matches up to the attractive look and feel of the book.

 

We are taken to Vroom-Town where all the trucks are asleep on the night before Christmas Eve when all of a sudden they are called upon to help out Santa Claus himself. His sleigh is broken and he needs the trucks to go to the workshop and help build him a new one. They’re happy to help, of course, but Terrible Terry and his friend Bullydozer are not in the Christmas spirit and they sabotage the new sleigh. All the helpful trucks are devastated but Santa sprinkles some magic dust over them and they help him to deliver the presents instead!

 

This is a lovely, heart-warming story for young children. My son is 5 and he really enjoyed it. It was nice to see that Terry and Bully got punished for their behaviour by being left out of the delivery with Santa, but they were soon forgiven and they still got gifts. I thought it was a nice message about admitting your mistakes and moving on. And of course, the helpful and kind trucks got amply rewarded too.

 

The illustrations are lovely and colourful and help to bring the story to life. At the end there is a sleigh to colour in, a maze and a secret code to access more games and puzzles on the website.

 

All in all it’s a really pleasing festive experience and I will be reading it again with my son in the run up to Christmas.
