Bloomsbury Children’s Books has acquired two Christmas stories for younger readers by Katherine Rundell.
The first book, as yet untitled, is about a child called Theo who, when left at home with a babysitter on Christmas Eve, wishes he could have some friends to keep him company. Moments later the Christmas decorations disentangle themselves from the tree, ready to wreak a little havoc. The title will be illustrated by Emily Sutton and published in gift format in October 2017.
The second book will also be published in gift format in October 2017.
